Mike Espy, the Mississippi Democrat candidate for the U.S. Senate, will be protesting in the capital city this weekend.

“I will be joining Black Lives Matter Mississippi in Jackson on Saturday, June 6 at 3:00 PM CT,” Espy said in a statement.

Espy has been critical of President Donald Trump in the wake of the death of George Floyd and the subsequent protests and riots that have resulted.

“As leaders,” Espy said, “we must ensure that what people remember, what people talk about, what ends up in our history books — is the millions of peaceful protesters from not only across the nation but across the world who, in the words of Fannie Lou Hammer, are ‘sick and tired of being sick and tired’ and demand change.”

Espy has stated on multiple occasions that he stands with the peaceful protestors and has called for donations to bail out “peaceful protestors across the country.”
