Philadelphia Curfew Extends To Seventh Straight Day As Protests Continue Across City

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — The city of Philadelphia will be under a curfew for a seventh straight day, officials announced Friday. The curfew will go into effect at 8 p.m. Friday and last until 6 a.m. Saturday.

Day six of protests over the death of George Floyd brought more peaceful demonstrations to the city on Thursday.


During a protest at the Art Museum, hundreds held what they called a “die-in” for eight minutes and 46 seconds. That is the amount of time a Minneapolis officer knelt on the neck of Floyd.

Protesters also marched to Love Park and then made their way to Independence Mall.
