Thousands gathered outside the US embassy in Østerbro, Copenhagen, to protest the death of George Floyd.

The demonstration started at the embassy and ended at Christiansborg, the seat of the Danish parliament.

Protesters held up signs saying ”Justice for George Floyd”, the black American man who dies at the hands of a white police officer.

Meanwhile, Floyd’s death has triggered protests in the US that quickly turned violent, involving clashes with police officers, cars set on fire, and even looting.

Since then, similar demonstrations, although peaceful, have been held in Europe.
