The unlawful killing of George Floyd in America has brought once again to the fore the level of injustice, discrimination and racial killings many blacks encounter in the varying communities and society as a whole.

The Black Lives Matter movement of international activists, originating in the African-American community, ensures that campaigns against violence and systemic racism towards black people are reported, highlighted and condemned globally.

The facts according to US Police Violence indicates that Black people counted for 24% of those killed by police in 2019, despite being only 13% of the population.
