Massive protests in London after the violent death of George Floyd: "There is no peace without justice"
The brutal death of George Floyd, an African-American who ended up trampled by a police officer, did not go unnoticed both in the United States and around the world. In Minneapolis, hundreds of people protested against the racist behavior of law enforcement and dozens of protesters were arrested. And the British were outraged by what happened and took to the streets to shout their revolt.
Hundreds of British people demonstrated in London on Sunday, May 31, after an African-American citizen found his end in a barbaric way, trampled on by a law enforcement officer. The 46-year-old man was immobilized, and the policeman continued to kneel on his head and neck until the man he found guilty of using counterfeit shopping bills took his last breath on the pavement.
After his death, people in the United States manifested their opposition to the racist attitude that law enforcement often displays. The British did not remain indifferent either, and on Sunday they met in Trafalgar Square to demand justice. "Without justice there is no peace!", The crowd chanted several times.
Demonstrators knelt, a gesture that became a symbol of the fight against discrimination in the United States, where similar rallies were held daily, after which they marched to the United States Embassy in Britain.
"Obviously, the images of what happened to George Floyd were extremely disturbing, as were the scenes of riots and violence in the United States," said British Foreign Minister Dominic Raab on Sunday. Asked on Sky News what he thinks about the issue, Raab declined to comment on a controversial tweet by Donald Trump and how he handled the crisis.
The American president, who has repeatedly denounced the "tragic" death of George Floyd, said the riots dishonored his memory by their "violence" and "vandalism". "When the robbery begins, it starts firing," he reacted in a message posted on Twitter, signaled by the social network as an "apology for violence."
Several US cities are under siege. Anti-racism protests continued on Tuesday (June 2nd), after Donald Trump threatened protesters to take the army out into the streets.
In fact, the Pentagon moved about 1,600 U.S. Army soldiers to the Washington, D.C. region after nights of protests and violence, Digi24 reports. Eight days after George Floyd's death, protests against racism and police brutality and social inequality do not seem to end too soon. People are more determined than ever to demand their rights in the streets, but President Donald Trump has told protesters he will use whatever means necessary to stop the protests. This threat provoked an even bigger wave of anger.
Thus, on Tuesday evening (June 2), thousands of people, including Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren, peacefully defied the traffic ban in the federal capital Washington. The area around the White House has been blocked by barriers.
Also, at least 60,000 people paid their last respects to George Floyd at a peaceful rally in Houston, Texas, where he grew up and where he will be buried next week. The 45-year-old African American was killed by a white policeman. He was unarmed and in police custody when an officer kicked him in the neck for minutes while George Floyd begged for his life. The tragedy was filmed and angered the community of people of color, who have been facing police brutality for years.
In Manhattan, several thousand protesters gathered to protest peacefully near the New York police headquarters.
On Tuesday night, the situation was calm in Minneapolis, the epicenter of this wave of revolt that spread to more than a hundred American cities and resulted in thousands of arrests and several wounded among police and protesters.
During the protests triggered by the death of the black American George Floyd, among the target shops of the protesters' robberies was the giant Apple, from where many phones and other devices were stolen. However, it appears that the perpetrators will not be able to use any object "purchased" illegally,
The iPhones stolen by those who robbed Apple stores during the protests triggered by the death of George Floyd will not only not be able to be used, but would take the police directly to the thieves, informs BBC.
The stolen phones were deactivated by the company and are being tracked, and local authorities were notified of the theft. The company sent a message displayed on their screens, explaining all these things.
Several images with these warnings appeared on the screens of the stolen phones were later published on social networks. Apple has temporarily closed some of its stores in the US, after a series of attacks during the BLM-Black Lives Matter movement.
There has long been a suspicion that phones on display in Apple stores have software installed that allows them to be tracked even if they are stolen. This was originally created if they are lost, if the buyer can no longer find his mobile.
The photos published on social networks confirm these rumors. An image on Twitter shows a phone with the message: "Please return the product to Apple Walnut Street. This device has been disabled and is being tracked. Local authorities will be alerted. " It seems that this type of message would have appeared on all stolen electronics during this period, so thieves will not be able to enjoy their use.
A few days ago a video appeared on the Web in which a married couple from St. Louis (USA) sent weapons to a crowd of protesters who entered their territory. Users of social networks were divided into two camps: some support a man and a woman who wanted to protect their home, while others are outraged as they dared to send weapons to "peaceful" demonstrators. But we were not interested in this debate in this story, but in the motives of the spouses who so desperately rushed to defend the mansion. It turns out that the house has its own story, and the owners spent 30 years on its restoration.
In 1988, a pair of young lawyers, Mark and Patricia McCloskey, bought a mansion in St. Louis, Missouri. The house was in poor condition, but with a rich history. Spouses say they were too young and naive to understand what they signed up for, intending to restore a huge mansion. After 30 years, the house looks amazing.
The hostess of the future home was eager to build one of the most luxurious homes in the Midwest. For this purpose, in 1909, she hired architects from Haynes & Barnett. Thomas Barnett sent his employees to Rome and Florence. They spent 2 years there, studying the architecture of Italian Renaissance palazzos. Already in 1912, the hostess staged the first ball in her new home. This information is reliably known since the couple of Maklossky in 1990 met with the daughter of Anna Audrey Faust Wallace.
Today, Mark and Patricia Maklossky are already 60 years old. Restoration of the mansion has become for them the work of a lifetime. That is why they did not hesitate for such actions when it was necessary to protect their property.
