Rally held at Hong Kong Seafood

Posted: Updated:

A stop the violence rally at Hong Kong Seafood in Birmingham hoped to generate awareness and help bring business back to restaurant.

The community is stepping behind this business to generate support. The purpose of the rally included helping bring customers back in.

Rev. Herman Henderson says the business has taken a toll because of the negative publicity. There have been three shootings on the property on 3rd Avenue West according to co-owner Rose Harrington, but Henderson says they're bringing peace back into this community. Along with spreading a message on stopping the violence, he wants people to feel comfortable bringing their families here to eat.

Harrington says, "The last few weeks, we've really reached out to the community and we've got other people to come to the community and we've got other people to come in from Stop the Violence Organization and they've been monitoring the place along with us to show us the things we can do better."

Henderson "This is family restaurant and these people worked hard to put this business in this community. what we need is more people to be the gate keepers to make sure we eradicate crime away from this community."

Harrington says she and her family are taking things one day at a time. She says there are two police officers monitoring at night and on weekends.
