Greece: Demonstrators rally outside US Embassy in solidarity with George Floyd protests

Hundreds of demonstrators held a rally outside the US Embassy in Athens on Monday, in a march of solidarity with the ongoing protests across the United States held in the wake of the death of George Floyd last week. Protesters can be seen chanting slogans, waving flags, and holding placards saying «I cant't breathe.» Police vans formed a protective perimeter in front of the embassy, where police in riot gear can be seen. Protests and demonstrations have taken place across the world, having begun in the US in reaction to Floyd's death, with riots and looting also occurring in some areas. Floyd, a Houston native, died in Minneapolis earlier this week after a police officer knelt on his neck for almost nine minutes as he was recorded saying, «I can't breathe» and «Don't kill me.» Four officers involved in the incident have since been fired. The officer who knelt on Floyd was arrested and charged with third-degree murder and manslaughter on Friday.
