Several thousand demonstrators gathered in central #Paris to protest not only the death of #GeorgeFloyd in the US, but also Adama Traore, who lost his life in #France when dealing with the police.
Video from Place de la Republique shows thousands descended into Paris streets for Saturday’s protest, with police at one point needing to deploy tear gas.
Assa Traore, sister of Adama Traore who died in 2016 in police custody, addressed the crowd at one point from a truck and said the death of Floyd had a “strong echo” of her brother’s death.
