Liberians Protest At U.S. Embassy For The Killing Of A Black Man In Minneapolis By Police Officers

The late George Floyd

Dozens of Liberians today, May 28, 2020 staged a peaceful protest at the United States in Monrovia to show their concern of the killing of a black man by police in Minneapolis, a major city in Minnesota, the United States.

The protesters called on the United States embassy in Monrovia to prevail on its government to speedily bring to justice the perpetrators involved in the murder of this innocent man, and further wondered as to why the blacks in the United States are always targeted by white police.

As the protests is said to be across the United States for the brutal death of George Floyd, Liberians themselves back home are also concerned and hoping that those involved will be brought to justice in order to serve as precedent for any would be perpetrators in the future.
