Thousands rally in Europe against racism, police brutality

BERLIN (AP) — Thousand of people took to the streets of Barcelona, Madrid and Rome on Sunday in support of the Black Lives Matter movement that has drawn large protests recently in the United States and beyond. The rally in Rome’s sprawling People’s Square was noisy but peaceful, with the great majority of protesters wearing masks to protect against the coronavirus. It came a day after largely peaceful anti-racism protests took place internationally in cities from Australia to Europe. Berlin police say 93 people were detained in connection with a rally in the German capital, most after the protest had ended. There were also minor clashes between police and protesters in London and Marseille.
