A Wilmington chapter of the Revolutionary Black Panther Party has announced plans to hold an “armed march” on Sunday in the coastal North Carolina city.
The announcement was made on a Facebook page belonging to a group called the Revolutionary Black Panther Party of Wilmington. The group announced to police that it intends to hold the “armed human rights march and armed freedom ride,” and that has made some city leaders uneasy, the Wilmington Star News reports.
The city’s mayor, Bill Saffo, said he was concerned about having marchers who could be armed, but he told the Star News that he believes Sunday’s event will occur without incident.
