The head of the New York branch of Black Lives Matter Hawk Newsom announced his intention to “burn the United States”, as well as the current system and replace it with a new one.
The United States intervenes and undermines regimes, replacing leaders with those they like. So for any American, accusing us of being violent is extremely hypocritical, Fox News quoted him as saying.
According to Newsom, violence is currently the only effective method to fight. He also recalled the 60s, when blacks managed to defend their rights only in this way.
If this country does not give us what we want, we will burn this system and replace it. Clear? I can say it both figuratively and literally. This is a matter of interpretation, ”the activist concluded.
A wave of protests began in the United States after the death of African-American George Floyd. He died while being detained by law enforcement officials. Rallies in honor of him were held in Minneapolis, and then throughout the country. The protesters later teamed up with the Black Lives Matter movement, which spread around the world.
As NEWS.ru informed, the protest rally in the camp of demonstrators, the so-called autonomous zone of Seattle (Washington, USA), has been completed. Protesters left this part of the city.
