George Floyd: A Year Later
On the anniversary of George Floyd’s murder by a uniformed officer of the state, we join you in taking stock of what has changed and what has not. Approximately 170 Statues and tributes to the Confederacy have tumbled or been renamed, while 2100 still stand on U.S. public land. Derek Chauvin, is being held accountable, but police violence continues unabated. We have seen an increase in police reforms since George Floyd’s death, but the protests that forced those changes are being increasingly suppressed.
In short, dear Writers for Peace, the last year has brought evidence of the power of writing and protest. It has also underlined the continuing reality that there is much to be done. Keep up the good fight, and keep on writing.
