On May 25, 46-year-old George Floyd died after a Minneapolis police officer kneeled on his neck for at least eight minutes.
In the week since, outrage stemming from the incident has led thousands of Americans to protest throughout the country. As USA Today reported, these protests vary from state to state and city to city, but show how deeply the circumstances of Floyd's death mirror struggles felt across the nation.
However, it would be a mistake to assume that this is purely an American phenomenon or sentiment. Indeed, protesters throughout the world are not only campaigning for justice in the George Floyd case, but in cases like his that could potentially happen anywhere.
So far, we've seen these protests and acts of solidarity emerge in at least 10 different countries other than the United States.
