The protests sweeping across the country aren’t just happening in the U.S. – but around the world as well.
Protesters chanting “Black Lives Matter!” gathered outside the U.S. embassies in both Berlin and Copenhagen over the weekend.
UK protesters marched through the streets of London, Manchester, Dublin, and Cardiff. A small protest of about 50 people gathered in Rome.
In Canada, protesters are calling for justice not only for George Floyd, but for Regis Korchinski-Parquet, a Toronto woman whose mother claims was pushed off an apartment balcony by police.
In Germany, demonstrators marched in solidarity with American protesters over the weekend, chanting "Stop Killing Us," "Black Lives Matter" and "No Justice, No Peace," as the killing of George Floyd sparks a global movement against inequality and racism. https://t.co/zDQptCNhQ6
