Black Lives Matter Demo - Sayings, Facts & More

Black Lives Matter (BLM) is a relatively young movement that emerged in 2013 within the African American community in the United States of America. Since then, thousands of people of all origins, religions and skin colors have come together under this slogan to fight racism and police violence against dark-skinned people.

Whether demos, silent protests, street campaigns or other creative street interventions, the BLM movement has been drawing attention to racism, police violence, justice and racial profiling against black people and People of Color in the form of various public actions in all countries of the world in recent weeks.

The occasion for many of these demonstrations is the violent death of Georg Floyd, who died on May 25. 2020 as an unarmed black US citizen was brutally killed in public by a white policeman. At many demonstrations, silent protests, streets or other public anti-racism actions, silence is kept together for 8 minutes and 46 seconds. This is how long the white policeman, Derek Chauvin, pressed his knees into the neck of the dark-skinned US-American George Floyd until he suffocated under the last words: "I can't breathe!

Shocking words that are currently circulating around the world in all languages to refer to the brutal reality of the dark-skinned population in the form of lettering on banners, demo signs, posters, pictures or mouth coverings. The hope that the violent death of Georg Floyd and many other victims of police violence will finally bring a worldwide awakening and put an end to racism lives in every silent protest, on every protest sign and on every lively and artistic street action.
