Officials have announced the city of San Antonio will be lifting its temporary curfew and working with organizers to maintain peaceful demonstrations in the city.
The announcement came after several days of peaceful protests in the downtown business district.
“The dialogue between the City, organizers, and demonstrators is a welcome development that is emblematic of the San Antonio way, and I am encouraged that we are able to end the curfew sooner than planned,” said Mayor Ron Nirenberg.
City Manager Erik Walsh and police recommended that the temporary curfew in the downtown business district be lifted.
The city tweeted, "SAPD requests that demonstrators help maintain peaceful demonstrations by identifying instigators. Please report criminal activity to officers on the scene. Participants are also reminded to social distance when possible, wear a face covering & stay hydrated."
In addition, the city is offering free parking in most City-owned lots, garages & meters on weeknights from 4 p.m. – 2 a.m. and all day on Saturdays & Sundays, June through August.
