EU must heed demands of protestors against racism, inequality & police violence
Protests against police violence and for human rights have spread to various cities in the US and around the world.
With protestors facing ever-greater repression, arbitrary arrests, assaults, & murder, we’re proposing a point on ‘Police Violence after the murder of George Floyd’ at June’s European Parliament plenary session.
Racism isn’t just systemic in the US. It’s the case in Europe, too. The EU must respond decisively to racism both in Europe and abroad and must condemn attacks on protestors and journalists on the streets as well as the inflammatory, hateful, language used by US President Donald Trump in recent days.
We stand in solidarity with all protesters standing up for their rights, for social justice, and for an end to white supremacy.
