The Prime Minister of Canada Justin Trudeau has taken part in a protest in Canada against the killing of black George Floyd in police custody in Minneapolis and racism around the world. An anti-apartheid rally in Canada was held on Friday to protest the death of black youth George Floyd.
Trudeau participated in a rally called “No Justice No Peace” in front of the Canadian Parliament wearing a black mask. Trudeau was accompanied by his bodyguards at the time. Taking part in the rally, Trudeau knelt down three times. In doing so, he protested the police brutality against Floyd.
Protesters also chanted anti-Trump slogans. However, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau did not speak at the rally. One speaker addressed the Prime Minister and told, “Either you are against discrimination or you are a racist.” There is no position between these two. Trudeau then clapped his hands in support.
George Floyd was arrested by police in Minneapolis, Minnesota, on the evening of May 25 for cheating. George Floyd died in police custody. On that day, a police officer publicly threw George on the ground in the street and grabbed George by the knees. He was held on the ground for at least eight minutes.
Video footage from an eyewitness shows George Floyd moaning and repeatedly telling a white police officer, “I can’t breathe.”
The video of this incident went viral right now. Thousands of people took to the streets in protest. Although the protests were peaceful at first, they gradually turned violent.
Although the celebrities of different countries have opened their mouths in the ongoing protests in the United States, the world leaders have remained silent. Although the slogan Black Lives Matter has spread in different countries of the world.
