Demonstrators and activists in Louisville, Kentucky, are to continue their fight for justice after a grand jury decided not to indict any of the police officers involved in the fatal shooting of Breonna Taylor, an unarmed Black woman, for murder.

Chanting, “Say her name” and “No justice, no peace”, hundreds of protesters took to the streets of Louisville on Wednesday.

While the grand jury brought no charges for Taylor’s killing, it did indict former officer Brett Hankison on three counts of “wanton endangerment”, accusing him of blindly firing into her neighbour’s apartments. Each count carries a jail term of up to five years.

The lawyers for Taylor’s family and the protesters said the charges were not enough.

“Make no mistake, we will keep fighting this fight in Breonna’s memory, and we will never stop saying her name,” the lawyers said in a statement.
