Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “Reactions Pour in Following Derek Chauvin Guilty Verdict in George Floyd Murder” – below is their description.
U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson welcomed news of Chauvin’s conviction, and London Mayor Sadiq Khan said George Floyd’s death “reverberated around the world.”
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau characterized the verdict in Chauvin’s case as “accountability” and cautioned that systemic racism isn’t confined to the United States.
In Australia, where Floyd’s death renewed questions about the police treatment of Aboriginal people, debates on racial issues continued along similar fault lines similar as in the U.S. Most recently, the Sydney Morning Herald reported that lawmakers are sparring over whether student-made Black Lives Matter posters critical of police were appropriate for an elementary school, with the New South Wales Police Minister calling for the teacher involved to be fired.Bloomberg Quicktake: Now YouTube Channel
