The restaurant is said to have organized a controversial event
BOWLING GREEN, Ky. – For the second time in less than a week, the BG Freedom Walkers came together to demonstrate in downtown Bowling Green on Monday night.
The group walked from the Warren County Public Library to Anna’s Greek Restaurant.
What led to all of this?
An officer involved in the shooting death of Breonna Taylor has been asked to speak at the Republican Women’s Club of South Central KY.
After the original venue canceled the event, the band reportedly rescheduled the event to take place at Anna’s Greek restaurant.
Restaurant-goers say they are outraged that the event could have taken place, leading to this protest.
BG Freedom Walkers founder Karika Nelson said: “We stand for non-hate, racism and bigotry here in our own city, in our community…. Even though [the restaurant owner] didn’t know when the reservation was made, you could have declined service. You could have chased them away. But you didn’t. You are therefore always held responsible.
