On May 25th, 2020, George Floyd was murdered by a police officer outside of a grocery store in Minneapolis for allegedly using a fake 20 dollar bill. His death is one in a long and storied history of police brutality against African-Americans in the United States. Shortly after, protests began in Minneapolis, and have swept across the globe. My name is Takashi Runtsch, and on May 30th, I participated in one such protest in Minneapolis. These photos document my experience.
