As outrage spreads over the killing of George Floyd in the US, protesters have taken to the streets around the world. The protests were called in solidarity with America’s Black Lives Matter movement, but the protesters are also highlighting racism and police brutality in their own countries — with Australians hitting the streets in especially large numbers. Thousands of demonstrators gathered in London, despite calls from politicians not to defy the lockdown there because of the COVID pandemic. Authorities have had to close roads around Parliament Square and are urging demonstrators to maintain physical distancing measures. And a major European protest is also underway in Berlin.
