Seeking justice for George Floyd has expanded beyond the U.S. with thousands hitting the streets around the globe this weekend in protest against racism and police brutality, and in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement. Turning up to protests in the UK, New Zealand, Canada, and Germany over the weekend, thousands of people gathered in capital cities to demonstrate. Many held signs reading "Justice for George Floyd," and the words "I can't breathe," which were said repeatedly by Floyd, a 46-year-old black man, who died on May 25 after a white Minneapolis police officer, Derek Chauvin, pressed his knee against Floyd's neck for 8 minutes and 46 seconds. Chauvin has been arrested and charged with murder. Protests have taken place in at least 140 cities across the U.S. in the week since Floyd's death.
