Mayor Frank G. Jackson and Chief of Police Calvin D. Williams continue to thank demonstrators, fans, visitors, partners, and officers for their efforts in ensuring a peaceful and pleasant holiday weekend. Demonstrations today were limited to peaceful protests in community neighborhoods, the Indians and Cavs games were a positive show of Cleveland’s spirit, and many visitors enjoyed a variety of summertime activities like the 2015 Great American Rib Cook-Off and Music Festival.
“As we head into Memorial Day, let us remember those who gave their lives in service for our freedoms,” said Mayor Jackson. “It is because of these men and women that we can enjoy all that we are blessed with while continuing productive, open dialogue that ensures we move forward as One Cleveland working together for the future of our city.”
At this time, no further press conferences are scheduled. Mayor Jackson and Chief Williams continue to encourage and support peaceful demonstrations but do remind those with a different agenda that actions that cross the line will not be tolerated.
The City of Cleveland Department of Community Relations has also released a list of faith healing centers for Cleveland residents to visit. You may find that list here.
