MELBOURNE: Amnesty International Australia has said peaceful protest is a fundamental human right and NSW Police should work with attendees to create a safe atmosphere.
“Many Australians have been affected by the murder of George Floyd, and many Australians know that the same issues are part of everyday life for many Australians, particularly Indigenous people and people of colour,” said spokesperson Joel Clark.
“Racism cannot be tolerated any longer, and the public must be able to use their voice to call it out. “Amnesty calls on attendees to respect social distancing: maintain a 1.5 meter distance, wear masks, and wash their hands frequently.”
