European Union Parliament Declares Black Lives Matter on Juneteenth
Yesterday on Juneteenth, and in sharp contrast to the overt white supremacism here, the European Union Parliament formally declared, “Black Lives Matter,” in a denunciation of racism and white supremacy, in the EU and the US. They also specifically decried the racist police murder of George Floyd, in a symbolic resolution brought by Renew Europe. The measure passed 493 to 104.
Renew Europe is also pressing for the formation of an EU-wide code of ethics for police.
