French police disperse crowd marking 2016 death of black man
French police fired tear gas early on Wednesday to disperse protesters marking the 2016 death of a black man in a police operation that some have likened to the death of George Floyd in the United States.
Thousands of people assembled earlier for a demonstration in memory of Adama Traore, a 24-year-old black Frenchman who died in a 2016 police operation.The protesters were defying a police ban imposed because of the risk of disorder and the danger of spreading the novel coronavirus.
The demonstration had drawn attention on social media of people supporting the “Black Lives Matter” movement and those backing U.S. protests in response to the May 25 killing in Minneapolis of Floyd, a 46-year-old African American who died after a white policeman pinned his neck under a knee for nearly nine minutes.
Traore’s family blamed excessive force during his arrest, when he was pinned down by three gendarmes. Successive pathology reports have reached conflicting conclusions over whether his death two hours later resulted from asphyxiation or other factors including pre-existing conditions.

Capitalism is failing. Too much wealth in the hands of too few while jobs are being eliminated by automation, outsourcing and computerization. Add to that the impact of climate change and you have a toxic mix that can lead to revolution. Don't protest pls 2016? MrMaitra right on cue with the French. . .
Protests are always great to have as long as the government is responsive and protests are peaceful. They all colluded with the fake bug BS, so of course they all need to loose that wound firing pin they expected to unleash during lock down 1. They are out to get us all. Stay safe💚💚💚💚 Say what you like about the French , but goddamn do they know how to protest

Michael Che Says It’s a ‘Bummer’ His 2016 Black Lives Matter Joke Is Relevant'I feel like the guy who wrote 'Amazing Grace.' You’re happy you hear the song, but every time you hear it you’re like, 'Oh no, what happened?' Because no one plays it for a good occasion.' I've never liked that song because, if I understand its origin, it was inspired by a slaver Captain who realized the horror of what he did. But what about the people who experienced the horror? He gets a song out it and redemption!
Paris bans demo over black Frenchman who died in 2016 police operationFrench police used tear gas to drive back protesters who gathered in memory of Adama Traore, a 24-year old black Frenchman who died in a 2016 police operation which some have likened to the death of George Floyd in the U.S. How does France enable access to justice for those asserting rights under UDHR and UN Charter to decolonization and the Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples Where does the State direct those to redress wrongs? For some strange coincidence these 'protesters' are the same people that loot stores, steal private properties, rob people. French police have treated black people disgustingly for decades. The country doesn't try to hide its bigotry or xenophobia.
