Global National: May 31, 2020 | Protests hit dozens of U.S. cities including Washington, D.C.
Global News Washington Bureau Chief Jackson Proskow was on the streets of Washington, D.C. where protesters rushed past him while he was live on-air for Global National. Police appeared to release pepper spray or tear gas in order to disperse the crowd near the White House on Sunday.
Protests have taken place in at least 76 cities across the U.S. this past weekend and in some cases the authorities have lost complete control. Jennifer Johnson has the latest on the riots and violence spreading across America.
The U.S. has a long history involving violence against black Americans. Rallies, protests and acts of civil disobedience often follow and as Mike Le Couteur reports, the country may be at a boiling point.
The hurt and anger sparked by the death of George Floyd has rippled through the U.S. and throughout the world. But amid the chaos there are powerful calls to bring people together and make changes.
