Protesters return to downtown Madison for fourth night of protests

MADISON, Wis. — Protesters have returned to Capitol Square on Tuesday for a fourth night of protests over the death of George Floyd.

Despite the evening’s severe weather, hundreds of people gathered outside to protest after the thunderstorms concluded in Madison. The protests have mainly remained peaceful at this time.

Tuesday’s curfew originally went into effect at 9:30 p.m., but the Madison City Council ended the curfew after a vote that same evening.

Earlier in the day, a group of protesters had caused rolling closures throughout the Beltline’s westbound lanes.
