Thousands march in Sydney in solidarity with US protests
SYDNEY (AP) — Thousands of protesters have marched through downtown Sydney, voicing their solidarity with Americans demonstrating against the death of George Floyd. The protesters in Australia’s largest city on Tuesday chanted, “I can’t breathe” — some of the final words of both Floyd and David Dungay, a 26-year-old Aboriginal man who died in a Sydney prison in 2015 while being restrained by five guards. Floyd died last week after he was pinned to the pavement by a white police officer who put his knee on the handcuffed black man’s neck until he stopped breathing. His death in Minneapolis set off protests that spread across America.
