LA JOLLA, Calif. (KGTV) -- Several hundred people peacefully marched in La Jolla Friday afternoon in support of the Black Lives Matter movement and to protest systemic racism.

The group gathered at La Jolla Cove and then walked to Windansea Beach as they held white carnations to signify peace.

It wasn't immediately clear how long the protest would be held.

The protest is one of several local demonstrations that have been held in San Diego County over the last few weeks. Nationwide, demonstrations have been held, sparked by the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis while an officer held his knee on his neck for nearly 10 minutes.
