Peaceful protests over George Floyd’s death continue
For the eighth consecutive day, protesters remain on the street peacefully to demand justice for the death of George Floyd.
Although some days ago some of these protests turned violent, and the police were sent to confront the protesters, the demonstrations of the last few days have been characterized as being peaceful.
President Trump has called on the governors of different states to allow the arrival of the army and combat “looters and losers” who seek to take advantage of the situation.
However, the governors have decided to trust the police to keep protesters in order, this as a preventive measure against a possible social outbreak.
In different cities of the country, protesters defied the curfew to take to the streets and sing protest songs like “We Shall Overcome.”
While some mayors and governors have stepped up their offensive against protesters, Los Angeles Mayor, Eric Garcetti, joined the protesters and knelt beside them to pray.
For his part, Defense Secretary, Mark T. Esper, disagreed with Donald Trump about sending active troops to the streets. While the USA is divided between opinions in favor and against the repression, the protests continue and the American people raise their voices to demand justice and equality regardless of skin color.
