CONWAY, AR/ 29 AUG 2020/ Protest groups meet at Conway City Hall following police decision.

SIGACT: Police decided not to release the results of their internal investigation regarding the death of a man in Feb. As a result, a “few dozen” Black Lives Matter protesters occupied the area immediately surrounding Conway City Hall while counter-protesters (roughly two dozen) stood across the street. According to reporters most were carrying rifles and some counter-protesters were wearing “Arkansas Patriot” patches with 30-40 additional members located around Conway in order to react to a potential riot.

RECOMMENDATION: Monitor local media and social channels for upcoming protests regarding national and local political decisions in Conway, Arkansas.
