In solidarity with protestors and victims of racism in the United States and around the world, a series of silent anti-racism protests are set to take place across Germany on Saturday, June 6.
These protests will follow a series of demonstrations that have taken place in the US over the past few weeks, sparked by outrage at the systemic racism and police brutality that have caused the senseless and unjustifiable deaths of countless innocent Black lives in the United States.
The number of lives lost are numerous, but recent protests center on the unjustified murder of George Floyd, who died on May 25 when a white police officer knelt on his neck for almost 9 full minutes as he struggled to breathe.
We at Bored in Munich fully believe that Black Lives Matter, and stand in solidarity with those that are protesting against these injustices not just in the US, but all around the world. We invite you to join us at the protest on Saturday, where we along with other residents of Munich will peacefully make our stance known.
Below you’ll find information on how to participate in this Saturday’s protest:
