White House on Lockdown as George Floyd Protesters Chant 'I Can't Breathe' Outside

Protesters gathered outside the White House in Washington, DC, on May 29, to protest the police-involved death of George Floyd in Minneapolis, on May 25. Members of the crowd can be heard chanting “I can’t breathe” in this video.

Derek Chauvin, the former Minneapolis police officer who was seen in video pinning Floyd to the ground while Floyd cried “I can’t breathe,” was arrested and charged with third-degree murder and manslaughter on May 29.

Local news reported the US Secret Service ordered a lockdown of the White House due to the demonstration. An estimated 2,000 protesters gathered in front of the building, the report said. Credit: @archaicrevival via Storyful
