Black Lives Matter is a movement dedicated to non-violent civil disobedience in protest to police brutality. The movement typically advocates against police violence towards black people, as well as for various other policy changes considered to be related to black liberation.

Activities of the movement heightened after a 46-year-old black American man, George Floyd, was killed in Minneapolis, Minnesota, during an arrest for allegedly using a counterfeit bill. Derek Chauvin, a white police officer, knelt on Floyd’s neck for almost nine minutes while Floyd was handcuffed and lying face down, begging for his life and repeatedly saying “I can’t breathe”.

A second and third officer further restrained Floyd while the fourth officer prevented bystanders from intervening. During the final three minutes, Floyd was motionless and had no pulse while Chauvin ignored onlookers’ pleas to remove his knee, which he did not do until medics told him to.
