Bird’s Eye View of Protests Across the U.S. and Around the World

The New York Times news page:

In small towns and large cities, many thousands flooded the streets on Saturday to protest racism and police violence in response to the death of George Floyd in the custody of Minneapolis police officers. Saturday was the 12th day of protests.

Minneapolis, Washington, New York, Philadelphia (my god the crowd here yesterday), Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Seattle, Indianapolis, Atlanta.

Berlin, Frankfurt, London, Paris, Bologna, Melbourne.

Everywhere. Or at least everywhere free speech reigns.

The New York Times op-ed page: “Send in the Troops”.

Within the pages of the same publication — regardless if it crossed the news/opinion divide — something had to give. And so it did.
