These images document the peaceful George Floyd protests in Miami.
There was very little rioting in Miami in the daytime before curfew; the protests were aggressive, high energy yet respectful. Protestors gave the police a respectful amount of space and surprisingly the police did the same. Everyone wore masks, protestors were providing hand sanitizer, and water, while marching for hours all over Downtown Miami, I-95, and Biscayne Blvd at a frantic pace. Each protest lasted past randomly established curfews in Miami-Dade.
These images are not of riots but of a peaceful protest after the death of George Floyd whose murder was the straw that broke the camel’s back across the world and has prompted a call to end US police brutality.
