Update: Today, May 29th, 2020: George Floyd Solidemo – 06:00 pm (18:00), ATTENTION Starting point has changed! Station forecourt (Döppersberg) main train station (Hbf) in Wuppertal.
Demonstration: May 29, 2020 – 6:00 pm (18:00) in main station (HBF, Döppersberg) square in Wuppertal (Germany). On May 25th George Floyd was murdered by cops, we are not sad, we are angry. Angry about the fact that it seems to be more and more normal that cops use more and more brutal force and also firearms as a matter of routine, whereby the victims are often seriously injured or killed.

George Floyd was lying on the ground with his hands tied behind his back and his murderer kneeled on his neck. The victim complained of chest pain and said several times clearly audible that he could not breathe. When George lost consciousness, people around him told the police to check his pulse, but the killer continued to kneel on his victim and did not stop until the emergency doctors arrived. George was 46 years old and died in Minneapolis.
An isolated incident? No! We see these kinds of murders all over the world. In the French banlieues alone, 14 people have been killed directly or indirectly by cops in the last 3 months (since Corona). In Germany, too, there are more and more cases of serious assaults on people in different situations. Especially low is the inhibition threshold towards demonstrators, people with migration background or POC.
Police violence is systematic. Fight back!
Demonstration: May 29, 2020 – 6:00 pm (18:00) Station forecourt (Döppersberg) main train station (Hbf) in Wuppertal (Germany).
