JUSTICE DEMANDED FOR GEORGE FLOYD.

Celebrities, musicians and political leaders gathered in front of George Floyd’s golden casket for a fiery memorial service for the man whose death at the hands of police sparked global protests. More than 10,000 people have been arrested in protests that have rocked the United States since the police killing of George Floyd

Meanwhile, The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) sued the administration of US President Donald Trump, alleging that officials violated the civil rights of protesters who were forcefully removed from a park near the White House by police using chemical agents before Trump walked to a nearby church to take a photo.

The lawsuit, filed in federal court, comes as Attorney General William Barr defended the decision to forcefully remove the peaceful protesters, saying it was necessary to protect officers and federal property.

As the protests against the killing of George Floyd continued, US Attorney General William Barr has blamed foreign interests and “extremist agitators” of exploiting the nationwide protests which has been largely peaceful with sporadic incidents of violence. Both Barr and US President Donald Trump have trained their guns at Antifa, a loosely organized anti-fascist movement,

In another development, Twitter Inc has disabled U.S. President Donald Trump’s campaign tribute video to George Floyd on its platform, citing a copyright complaint. The clip, which is a collation of photos and videos of protest marches and instances of violence in the aftermath of Floyd’s death, has Trump speaking in the background.

The social media platform has been under fierce scrutiny from the Trump administration since it fact-checked Trump’s tweets about unsubstantiated claims of mail-in voting fraud. Trump has pledged to introduce legislation that may scrap or weaken a law that shields social media companies from liability for content posted by their users.
