"The sanctuary is open!": Demonstrators denouncing in Louisville the legal consequences of the death of African-American Breonna Taylor were able to count on Thursday evening on the support of religious to escape the police, whose racism they denounced with one voice.

Apparent contrast to the rally the day before in which two police officers were shot and wounded, the hard core of the protest, this time peaceful, rushed once the curfew fell, at the First Unitarian Church.

"The sanctuary is open!" Shouts a black woman into a megaphone, immediately acclaimed by the crowd.

The church building in this Kentucky town immediately opened its doors to anti-racist protesters whose officials said they supported the cause.

The demonstration began on the campus of the faculty of Thammasat, scene in 1976 of a massacre where dozens of pro-democracy students were killed by the police, supported by ultra-royalist militias.

In the parking lot, groups equipped with walkie-talkies immediately get busy unloading boxes of provisions of all kinds. A few steps higher, those concerned by the police during the recent gatherings are offered legal assistance.

In the midst of all this commotion, Brother Tim, in brown robe and sandals, crucifix around his neck tries to make his way. The 63-year-old cleric patiently exchanges with those responsible for the protest and haggard activists, to organize the makeshift camp.

He also multiplies the comings and goings with the police in order to try to calm the ambient tension and the invectives exchanged between the two camps.

In the midst of this impromptu setting, one of the leaders of the protest even dares to draw a parallel with the civil rights movement of the 1960s, which had been fueled by many pastoral figures, including Martin Luther King .

In the garden which surrounds the stone building with large glass walls, rumors are rife and the demonstrators plague. They would have preferred to shout their anger in Jefferson Square, where they have been gathering for months to demand justice for the young hospital worker killed at her home by the police.

"We found ourselves trapped here", regrets to the AFP Grace Pennix, a young black woman of 19 years.

Around, the square is crisscrossed by rows of police officers, whose helicopters fly over the area. A few demonstrators are seated next to them, handcuffed.

The situation seems to exacerbate the already installed distrust of the protesters towards the police, whose racism they say they too often suffer.

Black beret on his head, brother Tim says he is "ashamed" to witness police violence against African-Americans.

The cleric says he was arrested 20 years ago during similar protests denouncing the death of James Taylor, a man shot and killed by police while handcuffed in his own apartment.

"Here we are 20 years later having to do the same thing", he sighs. "It's so frustrating."
