Join the Live Memorial of George Floyd
Hundreds of people have gathered to attend a memorial in Minneapolis for George Floyd as protesters across the world have marched for the 10th straight day on Thursday, in a movement against systemic racism and police brutality that has swept the nation.
The service, is the first in a succession of memorials planned in three cities for Mr. Floyd, 46, who pleaded that he could not breathe during a fatal encounter with the police in Minneapolis on May 25. His neck was pinned beneath the knee of a white police officer for nearly nine minutes, including after Mr. Floyd fell unresponsive.
In recent days, tens of thousands of protesters have gathered shoulder-to-shoulder in America’s streets, saying the names of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, a black man who was shot while being chased by three white men in suburban Georgia, and Breonna Taylor, a black medical worker who was shot by the police at her home in Louisville, Ky.
