In response to the murder of George Floyd by a member of the Minneapolis police department on 25th May, thousands of people across the United States joined protests demanding justice for his killing, radical reform of police forces, and driving home the message that Black Lives Matter. Many of these protests were responded violently by the US government using militarised police forces.

In solidarity with the Black Lives Matter (#BLM) protests, War Resisters League released a statement, which was endorsed by WRI Executive Committee as well. Read the statement here.

Also, on 11th June, we published an article documenting the suppliers of the weapons used against #BLM protestors. You can read our story here.
