Minneapolis protesters spoke out in interviews, saying looting and violence is not being done in the name of George Floyd.
Protesters in Minneapolis have condemned as “opportunistic” looting and violence taking place in cities across the US, saying it is not being done in the name of George Floyd, the 46-year-old African American man who was killed during an arrest this week.
A police officer was charged with murder on Friday but Saturday night again saw widespread violence and unrest.
In Minneapolis, some protesters spoke out in interviews with CNN, footage of which spread swiftly online.
In one interview, a man who did not give his name addressed looters directly, saying: “Something is wrong with you.”.
“I don’t think the looting and rioting is being done in George Floyd’s name,” he said.
From the White House, Donald Trump has tweeted remarks interpreted as threatening protesters and claimed the demonstrations have been taken over by political agitators. »
