All details about the protests.
In the US, nationwide mass protests erupted over the murder of an African American George Floyd. It 25 may smothered during the arrest, police officer Derek Showin. After that, America began the “black square” with its epicenter in the city of Minneapolis, where the murder took place, reports the Chronicle.info with reference to Country.
Floyd was the last straw: how do you think members of the movement, the police is purposeful terror against black Americans. They are killed during the arrest more often than whites. And the case in Minneapolis is not the first.
The current riots now are not only about the deceased Floyd: the authorities recalled the shot in February and March Ahmad private bathrooms (GA) and Breanna Taylor (ky).
All protests engulfed two dozen cities. In the night of may 30 have already become fully national: the rebels tried to break into the White house and the Capitol building and attacked the headquarters of the Agency CNN in Atlanta, stormed the stadium in new York city and the blockade of roads in Los Angeles, and in Louisville, the police was forced to shoot to kill.
Burning Houston, Denver, Detroit. That is, the rebellion spread to almost all the major cities of the country. Are mass arrests.
As protests swept the U.S.
As of may 30, the riots expanded to nine major American cities and many smaller ones. Here is a map published by NBC.
Analyze where the most serious clashes.
Washington. Protesters in the capital tonight (in the US it was a day) came to the White house. Security blocked access to the building. As a result, people crowded the fence that shielded the residence of the trump.
The protesters were thrown at police water bottles and other items. Then people marched to the Capitol building.
Only then removed the cordon at the White house.
New York. Thousands of protesters on Friday stormed the stadium, “Barclays Center” in Brooklyn.
The police began mass arrests, the protesters in handcuffs, “Packed” into buses. The police flew bottles. Special forces attacked the crowd and periodically pulled it from some people.
At the same time the rally under the slogan “We can’t breathe” (symbolizes the strangulation of George Floyd) was ustrali in lower Manhattan.
Atlanta. The demonstration in Atlanta was the most indiscriminate and cruel. More than a thousand people marched from the local Olympic Park in the city centre. They burned several vehicles, among them one police car.
Protesters also attacked the building of the news Agency CNN. Some climbed on the logo, painted it. Others burned an American flag. The crowd resisted the police, some of the guards sustained injuries and wounds.
If this were also the arrest of protesters.
To exhort the protesters left the youngest daughter of Martin Luther king was a famous fighter for the rights of blacks, assassinated in 1968 during a similar mass protests. Bernice king, who lives in Atlanta, urged to make the protest non-violent. But while very few people responded.
Detroit. Hundreds of people in the automotive capital of the United States joined the “March against police brutality”. They gathered in the evening at the headquarters of the Detroit police Department.
Many chanted: “No justice, no peace”. Some carried placards saying “Stop police violence”, “I’m not going to stop screaming until I can breathe.”
According to recent reports, in Detroit there is one dead among the protesters.
Denver. Yesterday was the second day of protests in Denver. Was more or less a peaceful demonstration through the city center.
But on the eve of Thursday, police used tear gas and rubber bullets to disperse the crowd, which smashed parked on the street cars. Arrested 13 people.
Houston. Here the protest was on Friday at city hall. People chanted “I can’t breathe” and “No justice, no peace”. But there were no excesses.
Louisville. In this very big city city, Kentucky, after the murder of Floyd remembered the death of another black woman — Breanna Taylor, shot dead by police in March.
Here were real street battles with the police. The protesters defended themselves with shields against them, used tear gas, the police flew bottles and stones.
Violence in Louisville is the second night. On Friday it became known that the gunshot wounds from the hands of the police received seven protestowa.
The night was quiet — the supporters of the protest marched around the buildings, headquarters of government.
Los Angeles. In this largest city in California, the protests turned to its full width. Protesters for several hours staged a brawl with police, blocked the highway 110, vandalized cars, attacked shops.
At least four police officers from Los Angeles were injured. The arrests are.
By midnight several jewelry stores were broken into and looted. Ruined food market. Someone broke a window in an office building — they were not even throwing stones, and gyrometer. One of the protesters invited the journalist of the local newspaper on the street a handful of jewels.
Actively “take out” stores with alcohol.
That is, there is open looting.
At the same time, police armed with firearms and batons. Protesters in Los Angeles especially not stand on ceremony. For example, hit with batons. Or shoot directly into the crowd — apparently stun grenades. Among the protesters, too, is wounded.
Here is the cutting and the most striking shots Friday from all States, made by American Global News channel.
What is the meaning of the American protests?
As you can see, the revolt in America is growing, despite threats from trump to suppress his troops. Moreover, it is not the protests with some political overtones. What was seen in the attack on CNN building Agency, which actively supported the action and criticized trump’s intent to use force.
That is, mainstream media are regarded by protesters as the same authorities — in a negative light.
This shows that the protests are spontaneous and uncontrollable character. People spew their hatred against the entire elite. Moreover, there to protest the mass — in a country of huge unemployment and economic crisis due to coronavirus restrictions.
And on Friday, the riots reached a new level and become a national phenomenon. Now to podavlyat only one Minneapolis, as promised trump, nothing need or brutally suppress protests in dozens of cities and States. Or make some steps toward the movement.
Both option for trump’s equally bad. In the first case it is before the elections in USA will put up a fight. Second, the President will be compelled to show pliability and weakness, which for him is a little peculiar.
Moreover, the “rebels”, regardless of their moral rightness, often behave like robbers and marauders, and therefore the harsh reaction against them is sometimes justified.
It is difficult to meet because the activists really do not require, and their protests just to show the ultimate power of hatred.
And trump’s history of challenging politically. Blacks — usually the electorate of the Democrats. In the presidential election of 2016 for the incumbent in the White house voted only 8% of African Americans. For Clinton — 88%.
So close to the Democrats the media is trying to spin the protest movement: they are in any case more profitable to enter the election campaign through “Maidan”, which, as I hope the opponents of the trump, will further undermine his rating after suffering from coronavirus.
And in Ukraine, meanwhile, analyze the difference in American protests from ours.
“Our chaos on this background even looks like a “respect for private property.” Maybe it is the result of understanding that for arson or auto shop in Ukraine really a broken leg. And screaming “don’t hit me racist, I expressed my indignation at the police” will not work. We have a well-developed insurance business. Compensation nowhere to wait. And the simple Ukrainians for their even “Lada” tear off the head. Because during even the most mass protests in Ukraine private property suffered very limited. At that time, as in the US or France “angry people” for any reason, burning cars and robbing stores of their more prosperous fellow citizens,” — wrote in his FB MP and an expert on international Affairs Oleg Voloshin.
