Protests over George Floyd’s death have gone international, with hundreds of people taking to the streets of London and Berlin to decry rampant police brutality in the US.
The chants of “No justice, no peace” rang out in the British capital on Sunday as protesters marched towards the US embassy in London. Some stopped at Trafalgar Square and knelt, imitating the gesture of NFL star Colin Kaepernick.
“It is really powerful that people come out and not just sit down. It is not just a black issue, it is a human issue,” a protester named Scott told RT’s Ruptly video agency.
The action in London was a lot less violent than in the US, however. The Metropolitan Police made five arrests, with two people detained for assaulting officers, and three others for violating Covid-19 lockdown guidelines.
In the German capital, the crowd of protesters also gathered outside the US embassy. They held signs that read: “Justice for George Floyd,”“Let us breathe,” and “Who’s neckst.”
“I promised that my future beautiful black babies will not die because I did not do enough, because I spent more time crying and complaining and posting than I did taking real action,” one of the Berlin speakers said through a megaphone.
