On May 25th 2020, another man was having difficulty breathing, but for very different reasons. In Minneapolis USA, George Floyd was lying pinned to the ground by a law enforcement officer’s knee on his neck as he tried to restrain him. Floyd’s crime – allegedly passing a counterfeit $20 bill in a local shop. Eight minutes later, Floyd was dead. In a country where race relations were already fragile, Floyd’s death re-awakened the strong sense of injustice, particularly among the Black community. In the weeks following, protesters marched across the world chanting George Floyd’s ‘I can’t breathe’ in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement, highlighting what they saw as racism in their own countries.
