The US is seeing a number of protests and marches which are to decry the death of George Floyd– a black man who died after a white police officer knelt on his neck for minutes during an arrest, while Floyd cried out: ‘I can’t breathe.’ (The officer – Derek Chauvin, who had been fired following the incident, has since been arrested.)
Floyd’s death is the latest in a long and harrowing list of black people dying during or following incidents with white police officers in the US.
So, people came out to the streets in their thousands to say that black lives matter and enough is enough.
The marches started in Minneapolis, Minnesota, the city in which Floyd died a week ago today, and soon spread to Los Angles, New York City, San Francisco and in the UK, London, Manchester, Cardiff and beyond.
