‘Let’s Remain Aligned And Focused In Our Call For Real Justice’ —Beyonce Encourages Protestors
As the fight for justice for the death of George Floyd keeps getting intense, Beyonce has again spoken up to encourage protestors not to give up, but remain aligned.
Hours after three additional officers involved in Floyd’s death were arrested, the multiple awards winner took to her Instagram page on Wednesday night to again show her support.
Posting a picture from the protest in Minnesota, Beyonce said; “The world came together for George Floyd. We know there is a long road ahead. Let’s remain aligned and focused in our call for real justice.”
Floyd died on May 25 after a police officer, Derek Chauvin, knelt on the 46-year-old’s neck.
Following a call for justice, Chauvin was taken into custody on May 29 and charged with third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter. However, Attorney General Ellison announced this week that the charge against Chauvin has been upgraded to felony second-degree murder.
Attorney General Keith Ellison shared on Wednesday afternoon that the three additional Minnesota police officers—J.A. Keung, Thomas Lane, and Tou Thao—had officially been charged in the case.
