Eighth Night of Protests

George Floyd protests

The eighth night of protests over the death of George Floyd saw less widespread violence and fewer clashes between police and protesters. Unprecedented curfews were still in place in major US cities, but thousands of people peacefully defied them, demonstrating late into the night. However, consequences from days of violent clashes are still being parsed out. Australia’s Prime Minister has called for an investigation after two of the country’s journalists were attacked Monday by police during a protest in Washington. And Facebook said it has shut down pages and accounts associated with a far-right group whose members were discussing bringing weapons to protests. Twitter made a similar move earlier in the week when it removed an account of a white supremacist group posing as Antifa activists.
