As thousands flood the streets for protests to denounce police brutality and racism, demonstrators all over the world have set up makeshift memorials to George Floyd, whose violent death in police custody last week sparked the protests.
In less than two weeks, protests and memorials have spread from where Floyd was killed in Minneapolis to as far as Tehran.
An official memorial was held by Floyd’s family in Minneapolis this week.
The service in Minneapolis will be followed by memorial gatherings in North Carolina and Texas, where Floyd was born and raised, respectively.
Meanwhile, protesters have set up makeshift memorials around the world to honor Floyd’s memory and that of other victims of racism and police brutality.
