Thousands of demonstrators gathered, today Saturday, in the streets of Australian cities, chanting slogans supporting the “Life of Blacks is important” movement in an effort to raise awareness of the country’s abusive treatment.
One of the organizers, “Pugin Spearm”, told media sources that the protest demonstrations are an extension of the global protests that erupted with the killing of George Floyd, an African American, during the detention of US Minneapolis police in late May.
In Brisbane, Darwin and Perth, the protest marches witnessed a decrease in the number of participants compared to last month, as calls from the authorities to stop them came amid fears of the outbreak of the emerging Corona Virus pandemic.
And tomorrow, Sunday, the Australian capital “Sydney” is expected to witness a protest demonstration, a month after the start of the exit of the first rallies to support minorities and indigenous people in Australia.
