Thousands of people protested the killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery and called for an end to police brutality Tuesday night across the city.
Protestors staged a “die in” in memory of Floyd, Taylor, and Arbery on Blue Hill Avenue and Franklin Park Drive on June 2, 2020.
Protesters participated in the “die-in” for 8 minutes and 46 seconds, the amount of time a Minneapolis police officer knelt on George Floyd’s neck.
