Rallies in the US Continue to Remain Curfews and Emergencies

The demonstrators continued to voice their correction of the death of George Floyd for the death of the sixth night in cities across the US on Sunday (31/5). Fix the problem of confrontation again with the police trying to enforce the curfew.

Los Angeles, Chicago, Miami, Detroit and Philadelphia are among the major cities that have imposed orders that apply to residents at night. The governors of Texas and Virginia have imposed a state of emergency in their state.

Fire, vandalism, looting and violence - mostly targeting the police - were damaged in five nights. The participants in the action, black and white, showed their victory over what was asked by the police to take responsibility for black men and women, and for systemic racism in the United States.

Police cars and government buildings were burned. Shop windows broken. Monuments in parks are scribbled and vandalized.

Police and National Guard soldiers opposed the riots on guard to discuss the generally peaceful demonstrators. The number of demonstrators continued to grow on Saturday (30/5). But the night of the compilation arrived and the night jam was not obeyed, some protests turned into protests, police protests to respond with pepper liquid, air gas

The demonstration began in Minneapolis where George Floyd, a black man who received 46 years, died after being handcuffed, facedown and crushed on the neck with a police knee for more than 8 minutes.

The widespread video taken by Floyd - who the police said was successfully removed using fake $ 20 for shopping - repeatedly said he could not save, while people on the street asked police to release him.

The police involved were charged with third-degree murder and second-degree murder two days later. He and three other policemen who were at the scene but did nothing, were fired last Tuesday (5/26).
