A group of protestors gathered in New York City’s Union Square on May 28, demonstrating against the police involved death of George Floyd, who died in police custody in Minneapolis on May 25.

Footage uploaded to Facebook shows a row of protestors in Union Square chanting “George Floyd” while facing off against a police line.

Protests, some violent, have occurred across America since May 26, the day after video circulated of Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin pinning Floyd, 46, to the ground with his knee on his neck. Floyd died soon after.
