Many came together to voice their concerns at a  'No More Silence' peaceful protest on Saturday evening in Statesboro .

More than 100 people rallied down Johnson Street to the Statesboro courthouse to protest for change after the deaths of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile.

Protestors were heard chanting "black lives matter!" and "No justice! No peace!" around the Statesboro courthouse to let people know exactly how they feel and how they want justice to be served.

Russell King, one of the organizers, says this was for the community to come together all ages, races, and creeds to show unity and the need for change.

"This could've been my son, this could've been me, this could've been my brother or my sister," said Russell King, rally organizer.

"Those of us in southeast Georgia, we want to stand up as well because what we see happening in these other cities could happen anywhere," said Jane Page, Statesboro Reverend.

"Too many guns in the United states too many people who own guns that aren't need for hunting and without getting into any 2nd amendment issues why do you need an arsenal at home," said Greg Brock, GA NAACP.

"Fed up the word is fed up black lives matter they're fed up, nothing getting done everybody getting off when they killed a child. This is plaguing our entire country, we need to do better, we need to stand up we need to stand up, no more sitting on your hands people," said Timothy German.

The Statesboro Police Department was there to help block off the roads and keep everyone safe during the protest.

The protestors at the event remained peaceful throughout the night, ending it with a prayer circle with their hands on the Statesboro officers.
