Anti-racism protesters must have the right to peaceful protest without governments' use of unnecessary and excessive force.  Even news crews are being hit with rubber bullets:  (https://www.reuters.com/live-events/2931155   US Police, National Guard must stand down now.   

'Rachel Ward, National Director of Research at Amnesty International USA, said on Sunday May 31, 2020:

“In city after city, we are witnessing actions that could be considered unnecessary or excessive force.

“Equipping officers in a manner more appropriate for a battlefield may put them in the mindset that confrontation and conflict are inevitable.

“US police across the country are failing their obligations under international law to respect and facilitate the right to peaceful protest, exacerbating a tense situation and endangering the lives of protesters.

“Police must engage in de-escalation, before the situation worsens.” '
