Two Thousand face mask protesters descend and march up 7th Avenue over George Floyd's death in Minneapolis.
As outrage grows nationwide over the death of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police, hundreds of protesters descended on New York City on June 02, 2020 marching up 7th Avenue chanting "I can't breathe" and “No justice, no peace!”
Floyd, a 46-year-old black man, was pinned to the ground by a white police officer who, video shows, put his knee on Floyd's neck for at least eight minutes before he died.
His death has led to massive protests across Minneapolis and the country, at times turning violent, with clashes between law enforcement and protesters.
The protest was largely peaceful, but marked by verbal confrontations between some protesters and police.
