SCHUYLER, N.Y. - Two demonstrations took place on Route 5 in Schuyler Wednesday night. A rally for President Trump, Claudia Tenney, and law enforcement. The other was a rally to support the Black Lives Matter movements.
The rallies took place in front of Dave's Diner.
One group, holding Trump and Tenney signs along with back the blue signs along with American flags.
The other group, holding signs as well, chanting "Black Lives Matter."
Organizers from both sides say they came out to show support for what they believe in.
"We're here to celebrate America, we're here to celebrate the freedoms that America was founded upon, we're appreciating that we live in this country and were born in this country," Martin Droz, an organizer for the Pro-Trump rally.
"We came out here and showed them Black Lives Matter and we don't care what they say," Abdullah Williams, an organizer for the Black Lives Matter rally said. "When we say Black lives matter, that is everybody matters to be honest."
