Another night of violence and clashes in Minneapolis with devastated shopping malls, burning cars, streets invaded by tear gas, suspended public connections. Protesters protesting the death of George Floyd, the 46-year-old African American killed by the police, also occupied a police station and later set him on fire. The mayor of Minneapolis, Jacob Frey declared the local emergency, asking for help from the state, to restore “order and calm”. Protests also in many other cities of America, including New York Oakland, California, and Denver, Colorado. Courses and sit-ins also in Chicago and San Francisco.

Thirty arrests in New York

At least 30 people were arrested in New York where hundreds of people took to the streets of Manhattan to protest George Floyd’s death and express his anger at police violence against African Americans. Moments of tension around City Hall, the town hall, where there was a throw of bottles and other objects towards the agents. One protester was arrested for possessing weapons, others for throwing garbage buckets into the street and blocking traffic.

Shoot in the street in Denver

In Denver, Colorado, the lockdown of the State Capitol, the state assembly, was triggered after some gunshots were fired while a demonstration was underway to protest the death of George Folyd, in Minneapolis, by the hand of the police. The situation is tense and many demonstrators have blocked some of the city’s arterial roads.

The appeal of the UN

Stop the killings of African Americans by the police. It is the appeal to the United States of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights Michelle Bachelet who condemns the killing of George Floyd, 46 years old African American, who is unleashing riots throughout the United States. “This is the latest in a long list of killings of unarmed African Americans,” by police officers or ordinary people, Bachelet said in a statement listing some of the recent victims, from Breonna Taylor to Eric Garner.
