Sunday, June 7, 2020. New York City – Today, I covered a Memorial for George Floyd at the Merchant’s Gate in Manhattan. The memorial was organized by the Taino community in New York City. After the memorial, I went to Barclays Center and then to Grand Army Plaza.

George Floyd’s body arrived in Houston. There will be a public viewing and memorial service in Houston on Monday, June 8, before he is buried on Tuesday, June 9, 2020, next to his mother, Larcenia Floyd.

Yesterday, Saturday, June 6, 2020, thousands of New Yorkers joined the protests to tell NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio, DEFUND THE NYPD!

The Instagram account justiceforgeorgenyc says, “NYC, we are SO proud. Yesterday (Saturday, June 6, 2020) was truly surreal. 25K of you took over Canal Street together and 20K marched across the Brooklyn Bridge into Manhattan!! ???Y’all marched through the heat and then the rain, and didn’t let anything stop you. 3,000 of our healthcare heroes marched with you. Surfers in Queens paddled out and cyclists in Brooklyn rode through in solidarity, all with one loud & clear message: #BLACKLIVESMATTER ?? #justiceforgeorgenyc #NYCStrong #NYCForBlackLives.”

Some people want Mayors to DEFUND THE POLICE. Some people want Mayors to ABOLISH THE POLICE.

The Guardian reports that, “A veto-proof majority of the Minneapolis city council has announced its intent to dismantle the city’s police department and invest in community-led public safety, a move that would mark the first concrete victory in the mounting nationwide movement to defund law enforcement agencies in the aftermath of the police killing of George Floyd.”

This morning, NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio lifted the 8 P.M. – 5 A.M. curfew.

Black and LGBTQ-headed organizations, protesters, legal observers, and medical workers said in a joint statement: “After immense pressure from protesters and the threat of a lawsuit we had prepared to file today, Mayor de Blasio has lifted New York City’s curfew, a blunt tool of state-sanctioned oppression used to silence legitimate protest. The City’s focus should not be on silencing protest and resistance, but on ending anti-Black police violence and impunity. Eliminating the curfew was a necessary step in stopping the cycle of police violence and silencing the mass of voices demanding recognition and dignity for Black Lives. No longer will the NYPD be able to use curfew enforcement as justification for their attacks and arrests on protesters, essential workers, journalists, and bystanders.” They also said the New York City Council “needs to cut police funding, scale back police involvement in our schools, and divert resources toward services that will benefit the community.”

Message from Senator Bernie Sanders.
Message from Dr. Cornel West.

Message from Dr. Jill Stein on Twitter, “Countless people are in the streets calling for an end to systemic racism. We shouldn’t settle for a few token concessions. It’s time to use our power to demand comprehensive racial justice legislation at all levels – and elect people who will work hard to get it passed!”
