George Floyd, an African American man, was murdered on 25 May 2020 during a police arrest. Protests seeking justice for Floyd began in the United States the next day, with citizens of other countries soon following suit. Internationally, protesters have shown opposition to racism worldwide,[1] opposed police brutality,[2] questioned the arming of police,[3][4] and expressed solidarity with their counterparts in the United States.[5] Prominent local issues have included the 2016 death of Adama Traoré near Paris while in police custody (for whom roughly 20,000 people have protested at various times) and the high rate of death amongst incarcerated Indigenous Australians.

Protests have taken place in over 60 countries and on all seven continents. The protests are taking place during the COVID-19 pandemic, during which gathering in crowds is strongly advised against in some parts of the world, and is illegal in others.

Southeastern Asia[edit]

  •  Indonesia:
    Papuans have been protesting for decades against how the Indonesian government has treated them. The use of police brutality against Papuan students resulted in a serious series of protests in 2019.[72][73] Seven Papuans arrested the previous year, known as the "Balikpapan Seven", were given "surprisingly light jail terms on treason charges"[e] after the George Floyd protests began, possibly to avoid the unrest seen in American protests.[f][72][75][74] Many have drawn parallels between the George Floyd protests and those of the Papuans, resulting in the trending of the hashtag #PapuanLivesMatter online[g] and people in George Floyd protests outside of Indonesia also expressing solidarity with the Papuans.[76][77][78] Protestors have also likened George Floyd with Obby Kogoya, a Papuan student living in Yogyakarta whose head was stepped on[h] by an Indonesia policeman while he was lying face down on the ground as the police held his dorm under siege to prevent a peaceful protest.[79][81]
    Journalists, both foreign and domestic, face heavy resistance from the Indonesian government when attempting to report events in Papua.

Protest in Brisbane on 6 June
Protestors in Melbourne on 6 June
On 6 June, protests involving tens of thousands were held in cities across Australia. These showed solidarity with the George Floyd protests, but also highlighted issues of racism within Australia including Aboriginal deaths in custody.[277]
The George Floyd protests sparked a strong response among New Zealanders, in particular among the indigenous Māori people who face structural discrimination similarly to African Americans in the United States.[279]
