Tuesday, June 2, 2020 - 5:58 am

Racial justice protesters returned to downtown Potsdam for a second rally in two days, this one drawing about 1,000 supporters that marched several miles through the village on the evening on Monday, June 1, then rallied on Elm Street. The demonstrators marched through Potsdam chanting the slogans of today’s civil rights activism - 'Black lives matter,' 'I can’t breathe' and others.
