Black Activists and Allies Held Peaceful Protests the Media Ignored


People of all identities took to the streets to exercise their right to protest. Their stories should not be sidelined by those seeking violence. 

Protesters continue to demonstrate around the world following the death of George Floyd, a Black man who was murdered by a white Minneapolis police officer.

Floyd's death is one of several incidents against Black Americans in recent weeks that have fueled righteous anger among protesters.

Among these deaths are Breonna Taylor, who was shot by police in Louisville, Ky.; Ahmaud Arbery, who was killed by three white men in Georgia; Christian Cooper, a gay editor who was bird-watching in New York City's Central Park when a white woman was filmed giving a false police report against him; Tony McDade, a Black trans man who was killed by police in Florida last week; and Nina Pop, a Black trans woman who was stabbed to death in Missouri.

Over the weekend, as demonstrators were protesting peacefully, an unrelated group of rioters violently destroyed property in cities across the country.

While the mainstream media often chose to focus on the rioters instead of the widely intersectional group of peaceful protesters around the world, we're choosing the alternate route.

Here are some highlights from protesters who took part in demonstrations in the United States and across the globe, including in London, Canada, Japan, Ireland, New Zealand, Australia, and many more.
