Protesting the recent shooting death of a man by Smyrna police, activists disrupted brunch service at three area restaurants on Sunday. The protesters hit Vinings eateries Another Broken Egg Cafe, Canoe, and Paces & Vine, reports WSB-TV.
Some customers at the restaurants decided to end their meals early amid the disturbance, and one patron told the local ABC affiliate that the activists weren't successful in explaining their message: "The cause was good, if they were just a little bit calmer about it. I think have better results." Reed Gallman, who participated in the protests, told WSB that the purpose was to "disrupt traditionally white spaces that maybe are uncomfortable that racism is still a factor in our society."
