"Please I can't breath.

My stomach hurts.

My neck hurts. 

Everything hurts.

They are going to kill me."

George Floyd

We lost another black life. He asked for water but it wasn't given, he begged for his life not to be taken away and no request was accomplished. He died. No words can be found to explain the huge amount of racial inequalities the black community has faced in the US for the past centuries. We must unite for George Floyd, a black man who deserved to be on this Earth same as all of us, a black man who was let suffocate amid the indifference of who we expect to rend us justice. I'm totally devastated as a white young man to watch this uncontrollable white supremacy, my heart is broken as a result of the American Civil Acts being violated. I still feel this is not enough and we must all sign this petition to ask for justice over George Floyd's life. Please let's unite our voices in order for them to be heard, we must not let these facts be described as "medical incident". We ask for those responsible to be sentenced. The footage is very clear. Through this petition we ask for more protection for black lives, it's now time to end white privilege and treat everyone at the same level. We ask to reinforce laws against racism across the United States of America, NO to police brutality towards unarmed and innocent humans! Enough is enough! 

"Being Black in America should not be a death sentence. For five minutes, we watched a white officer press his knee into a Black man’s neck. Five minutes. When you hear someone calling for help, you’re supposed to help. This officer failed in the most basic, human sense. What happened on Chicago and 38th last night is awful. It was traumatic. It serves as a reminder of how far we have to go. For the better part of the night, I’ve been trying to find the words to describe what happened. All I keep coming back to is this: this man should not have died. What we saw is horrible. Completely and utterly messed up.The man’s life matters. He matters. He was someone son. Someone’s family member. Someone’s friend. He was a human being and his life mattered. Whatever the investigation reveals, it does not change the simple truth, he should still be with us this morning. I believe what I saw and what I saw is wrong on every level. This does not reflect the values Chief Arradondo has worked tirelessly to fulfill. To our Black community, to the family: I’m so sorry."
