Protests and riots have swept across the US, the UK, Germany, Sweden, the Netherlands, and other countries as demonstrators are calling for justice and an end to racial inequality, with violence and looting breaking out in numerous cities.
On Wednesday evening, activists in Athens, Greece started marching towards the US Embassy protesting against racism in solidarity with the American protesters over George Floyd's death.
Various organisations, collectives, and common residents of Athens are marching to the US Embassy after gathering at Syntagma Square.
Mass demonstrations erupted in the United States on 25 May, after Floyd, an unarmed 46-year-old African American man, died in police custody in the US city of Minneapolis. The protests broke out after a video surfaced showing white police officer Derek Chauvin kneeling on Floyd's neck for more than eight minutes before the detainee became unresponsive.
