Protesting against death of Mr. George Floyd, a black American, from violent torture committed by US police officers
Union for Civil Liberty (UCL), a human rights organization in Thailand, strongly condemn the incident on 25th May 2020 of which four police officers in Minneapolis City, Minnesota, U.S.A., arrested Mr. George Floyd, a black American, and a white police officer kneeled on his neck when he did not resist the arrest and continued even after he pleaded that he could not breathe, resulting in his death. The incident has caused much anger amongst people of all colours, leading to protests in more than 100 cities all over the US and around the world.

The incident is a serious violation of human rights of which people, not only in the US, but all around the world cannot accept. UCL therefore is demanding that the following actions are carried out:
