Cronología de protestas por muerte de George Floyd
June 4, 2020 - La muerte del afroestadounidense de 46 años George Floyd cuando estaba bajo custodia policial en Minneapolis ha encendido protestas en todo Estados Unidos y llevado el tema de la justicia racial al primer lugar de la agenda política cinco meses antes de la elección presidencial del 3 de noviembre.
The vast majority of demonstrations over the past eight days have been peaceful, but some have turned violent and curfews have been imposed in a number of cities.
Prosecutors on Jun 3 upgraded charges for the four officers involved in the Floyd case. The charge against Derek Chauvin was elevated to second-degree murder, court documents show. The other three officers, previously uncharged, face counts of aiding and abetting murder.
The protests have echoed those of the Civil Rights movement more than 50 years ago. This action was led by Martin Luther King Jr and sought to challenge white supremacy and the segregationist policies that were commonplace at the time.
