NORTH MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WBTW) – Organizers plan a protest in North Myrtle Beach on Tuesday starting at 1 p.m.

“We shall remain peaceful and march down Main and hopefully the boulevard,” the flyer for the protest states. Participants will meet on Main Street in North Myrtle where the old Bi-Lo was at noon.

Traffic conditions could be affected by the protest.

The North Myrtle Beach Police Department will participate, according to Patrick Dowling, public information officer. “We will participate and guide any peaceful group whose members wish to voice their concerns,” he said.

A statement ending the flyer reads, “Honor those fallen to police brutality and racism. This is a fight for all!”

Organizers encourage people to bring plenty of water, wear comfortable shoes, sunscreen and take a battery pack to charge phones. Wear long hair up and out of the way, and study your rights, they suggest.
