  • Protests over Floyds death spread to Australia

Kyiv: Several hundred people gathered at the parliament building in Sydney due to the death of African American George Floyd in the United States.

According to local media, the protesters are holding posters that read Black Lives Matter, “Stop killing the innocent,” “No justice, no peace,” “Australia is not innocent.”

The column with activists headed towards the US Embassy.

Recall, the US police tried to detain the African American George Floyd, knocking him to the ground. Later, one of the police officers threw his knee around Floyd's neck. In a video published on social networks, one can hear the detainee repeating several times that he cannot breathe, after which he lost consciousness. As a result, Floyd was hospitalized, but he died in intensive care.
