Another death at the hands of police brutality and the world goes on fire: enough is enough. People have descended to the streets demanding justice for George Floyd, who died on May 2nd in Minneapolis, Minnesota after white police officer Derek Chauvin knelt on his neck for almost nine minutes while handcuffed and lying face down on the street. The life of another black person so unjustly and mercilessly cut short has touched hearts and angered of millions of people around the world. Large numbers of demonstrations organised by Black Lives Matter and many more globally have demanded justice and the end of police brutality in remembrance for the many who have died because of the colour of their skin.
