American embassies across the world marked the anniversary of George Floyd’s murder at the hands of Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin Tuesday by prominently displaying the Black Lives Matter flag.
“We raise this banner in honor of George Floyd, murdered one year ago today, in solidarity with people around the globe seeking a world without racial discrimination and a future with equal opportunity for all,” read a post from the embassy’s official account, which included the hashtag “#BlackLivesMatter”.
Similar displays took place at American embassies in Madrid and Sarajevo, while US Ambassador to Cambodia W. Patrick Murphy tweeted an image of the flag on the fencing surrounding the embassy in Phnom Penh.
“As we mark the 1-year anniversary of the murder of George Floyd, we are reminded of injustices that persist and our commitment – and obligation – to seek justice, equality, and respect for all,” tweeted Murphy, who added the hashtag “#BLM”.
