This weekend, the country was swept by non-violent protesters as demonstrators in all 50 states called for equality and an end to police violence following the tragic death of George Floyd. These marches were joined by activists around the world, who took to the streets in France, Germany and Brazil, to name some.
Regardless of the location, the protests also called for increased freedom of speech, assembly and press following the violent suppression of protesters last week. Both the United States Constitution and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights protect these fundamental freedoms for people everywhere.
