Following the murder of George Floyd by Minneapolis Police on 25 May, a wave of protests swept across all fifty American states. The country has seen peaceful marches, and occasionally riots, in which protesters voiced their rage and grief over America’s history of police brutality, and how it led to the murder of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Sean Monterrossa, and many more. At the time of writing, the Bay Area was in its fourteenth consecutive day of protest. This collection of photos shows the initial days of action in San Francisco, from 31 May to 6 June.
