In memory of brother Floyd who was killed in a gruesome manner, we have decided to rename Flame Lily Way to George Floyd Street. It the road that passes through the American Embassy.
We need to keep reminding the Americans that they have innocent blood on their hands, that there is fresh blood on their hands, that they have the blood of a black person on their hands.
As a tribute to Floyd whom we believe his murder marks the end of all forms of oppression, discrimination and racism, his death has freed us.
Floyd’s death sparked widespread protests all over the world, some especially in the US lasting for over 1 week.
