George Floyd, a 46-year-old African American man has died in Minneapolis on 25th May. It has been evident in the various video footage of the incident which has become viral that one of the police officers pressed his knee at the back of the neck of Floyd as he laid upside down for several minutes before he fell unconscious and was later declared dead on arrival at a nearby hospital.

This incident of George Floyd dying in police custody has caused outrage in the United States. A peacetime emergency has been declared in the state of Minnesota and the National Guard has been activated as well. The protest has not only been limited to Minnesota, as there are protests in California, New York, Ohio and Colorado as well.
