View Pictures of the George Floyd Protests Nationwide

A memorial was underway for George Floyd in Raeford, N.C., on Saturday, as demonstrations in his memory and against police brutality were held nationwide. Hundreds of thousands of people were expected to take to the streets nationwide, in Washington, D.C., and other major cities, as well as in countless smaller cities and towns in between.

Beyond the U.S., people gathered worldwide to protest racist policing, with huge demonstrations already having taken place in Tokyo and all across Australia, and thousands braving a cold rain in London to gather in Parliament Square. Large protests took place as the day went on in Berlin and Paris, where nearly 20,000 had demonstrated not far from the Eiffel Tower earlier in the week.

As protests continued, cities have begun swiftly turning toward allegations of brutality faced by their own police departments. A hearing was held in Buffalo on Saturday for the two police officers who were caught on film shoving a 75 year old protester to the ground.

Near the site where George Floyd was killed in police custody, children ran through an installation of tombstones honoring victims of police killings.

Danielle Burns, whose brother Jamar Clark was shot and killed by the Minneapolis police in 2015, was one of many hoping to get the governor’s attention regarding police brutality. “This is why it’s so riled up right now,” she said. “It’s because we are not divided, we are together. We all deserve justice.”

From coast to coast, protesters had a consistent reaction to the charges that have now been brought against three additional police officers in the death of George Floyd: It’s good news — and it’s not nearly enough. There need to be convictions. There needs to be systemic change.
