France: Parisians honour police brutality victims as they march in BLM-related rally

Parisians took to the streets in the French capital on Saturday, to oppose racial violence and police brutality and honour black people who had died at the hands of police. Protesters gathered in Place de la Republique and marched across the streets, as they shouted 'No Justice, no Peace' and carried banners demanding 'Justice for Ibo', or Ibrahima Bah, a 22-year old black man who died on a motorbike accident during a police operation last October. They also remembered Lamine Dieng, a 25-year old Franco-Senegalese who died inside a police van after being arrested, in 2007. Many were also carrying signs demanding the abolition of police forces as they marched behind a banner reading 'Let us breathe.' Several demonstrations decrying police brutality are being held across the world, after the killing of 46-year old George Floyd by a white police officer in Minneapolis last month.
