Minneapolis Remembers George Floyd 3 Years After His Murder Set Off Historic Protests

HeadlineMay 26, 2023

In Minneapolis, community members gathered Thursday for a vigil at the intersection where George Floyd was murdered three years ago by police officers. A daylong festival and concert are planned for Saturday. Other cities around the country also held memorials and protests.

In related news, The Guardian reports U.S. cities will pay at least $80 million to racial justice protesters who were violently attacked by police in various incidents during the Black Lives Matter uprising following Floyd’s killing in 2020. That number, already record-breaking, is expected to go up as pending lawsuits are resolved.
