Caption :
Demonstrations were organized on Saturday 13 June in several French cities (Paris, Lyon, Marseille, Montpellier...) against racism and police violence. The largest rally took place in Paris, at the call of the Adama Committee named after Adama Traoré, a young black man who died in July 2016 after being stopped by the gendarmerie in the Paris suburbs, where more than 20,000 people gathered, according to the police prefecture. While the parade was due to leave Place de la République at 2:30 pm, the procession was blocked by the police. The mobilisation took place against a background of tension between the forces of law and order and the Minister of the Interior. The death of George Floyd, a black American man killed in Minneapolis on 25 May by a white policeman, aroused widespread worldwide indignation and "Black lives matter" became a universal slogan within a few days.
