Hundreds of protesters marched through Lynn, Mass. on June 26 in support of two Tufts Dining workers, Victor R. White and Alexandros Armand, and a third individual not affiliated with the university, Scott Reed.
The three men were arrested by Lynn police on the night of June 15, and White alleges that he was beaten by a police officer while in a holding cell at Lynn Police Department (LPD) headquarters.
“I already know me speaking up … is going to make me a target, but it’s okay, because I was born a target. I was born Black. I’m always going be a target,” White said to demonstrators massed in front of LPD headquarters.
