Usually in these instances the International Community, Bilateral Organizations and United Nations Organizations would come out with statements, letters and MPs from all across would write and send memos, where they would express concern, care for humanity and the human rights violations done by the state.
The United States of America is surely there now. the Trump Organization, sorry my bad, it’s the Trump Administration lackluster behaviour. Its internal behaviour towards social media, its Executive Order against Twitter. There is also the arrest of the CNN Team in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
While there is demonstrations across the Republic. There is violent police officers, arresting demonstrators and so fourth. This is as a reaction to the police officers directly murdering George Floyd in broad daylight. Because of this its days of demonstrations. The public have been burning buildings. While the police has delivered tear-gas towards them. This is the anger and agony, as the minority is targeted by the authorities and the police.
Floyd is just the latest casualty in a long line of innocent civilians dying because of their race, skin-colour and ethnicity. That is the sad reality of the police and the authorities in the United States. That they are directly mass incarcerate this community and its people. While, if they are trying to live free, they might become a target and loose their lives by doing simple things like jogging or going to the nearest barber.
The African Americans are really hard hit. They are the ones handpicked, the ones no matter what they do its wrong. If they kneel, its bad, if they are on the streets, its bad and if they post online. Than that’s bad too. So, in reality, the aggression and the demonstrations seen these days is the last drop into a glass of water. It was bound to go over. There been so many people of African American descendants whose been taken out early, by either mistake or by brutal lethal force. Which was the same with Floyd.
This is why the international silence is showing its precedence, because if this was elsewhere. The UN would send Experts and Investigate the matters of Human Rights Violations and Extra Judicial-Killings. Which this is, the authorities and police is initiating these killings and doing the bidding.
What is even more striking is how the President plays into this. As he has engaged positive and in favour of White Armed Demonstrators against the lockdown. However, when you address the marginalization and systemic oppression of African Americans. Than the President has no issues with saying his willingly sending the National Guard and start to shoot at the protesters. This is only happening in dictatorships, but apparently, the US is swiftly getting their under Trump.
The US should be sanctioned, as its okay to take lives of African Americans without any cause. Their lives doesn’t matter, because if they did. Then it wouldn’t be that easy to take their lives and trying to find ways to make reasons for the demise of this civilian. The same fashion, as all the other bystanders and raided houses where innocent civilians of same kind been taken away. Or if a brother is running or jogging and get hounded by White Supremacists.
This is the revision of the Jim Crow era, we are returning back to the evil days, where the public are targeted for their colour, their creed and their ethnicity. Which is wrong by all means. Where you can be taken out, not because your a terrorist, but because you were born. That is all and enough.
That is why the International Community needs to act. Needs to address this and show force. They need to show the world that this mentality, this reality and these means are all wrong. That the US government needs a lesson. They need to be sanctioned, they need to warned and need to feel pressure from abroad. They are not treating their citizens correctly. This needs to be said and not done in silence.
The demonstrations, the civil disobedience is all natural. As the public is outrage. This is the aftermath of the murder of Floyd. While the authorities are “investigating” it and not doing it in a manner, which they would normally do, if this was a citizen and especially if this was a minority suspect. The minority suspect would be charged and rot in jail, while the police officer is walking free awaiting pending investigation and possible charges down the line. But, a minority, an African American suspect, which is a citizens would be hounded down in bracelets before dawn.
That’s why the people is Minneapolis is reacting like this. Also, why there is demonstrations elsewhere. As this is not only happening in Minnesota, but across the Republic.
So, now its time for the International Community to act like it does elsewhere. We are seeing muffling of media. Roughness towards demonstrators and also rhetoric of more violence from the President. While there is no piece of redeeming factor here. The authorities are downplaying it.
That is why pressure also coming from the outside. The world cannot accept extra judicial killings elsewhere, so they shouldn’t accept it happening in the United States. Peace.
