Protesters convened on Brooklyn’s Barclays Center on the evening of May 29 to protest the police killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis on May 25.
This footage was taken outside the arena, where many protesters had marched following demonstrations in lower Manhattan. Phalanxes of New York Police Department officers, some on bicycles, could be seen in several locations. Authorities had set up metal barriers in front of the Barclays Center.
Derek Chauvin, the former Minneapolis police officer who was seen pinning Floyd to the ground amid his cries of “I can’t breathe,” was arrested on third-degree murder and manslaughter charges on Friday, May 29. Credit: @Brandonmaxwell via Storyful
