Black life doesn't matter in America, Floyd's brother told the UN



George Floyd's brother pleaded with the United Nations on Wednesday to help African Americans because "the black life in the United States is important," because the United Nations' rights chief has called for centuries of discrimination.


Filippo Floyd made an abusive speech via video-link to the emergency United Nations Human Rights Council debate on "systemic racism" in and outside the US.

United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights Michelle Bachelet said Floyd's "brutal brutality" in police custody fueled the racism that would harm millions of African descent.

It urged countries to confront and rethink the legacy of slavery and colonialism.

The Council in Geneva is discussing a draft proposal to pursue a Bachelorette to investigate police violations of racism and civil liberties against people of African descent in the United States.

President Donald Trump stepped down from the US two years ago.

Since the killing of a 46-year-old black man named Floyd by a white police officer in Minneapolis on May 25 - his knee has been cut on Floyd's neck for nine minutes.

Te quick videos of the incident have provoked demonstrations and calls for addressing systemic racism in the United States and around the world.

Filonis Floyd said he "tortured" his brother, and witnesses begged the officer to stop, saying, "We are showing the same lesson to black people, and yet: black life in the United States does not matter."

"You are your brother and keeper of the sisters in the United States, and you have the power to help me bring justice to my brother George Floyd."

"I'm asking you to help him. I'm asking you to help me. I'm asking you to help the black people in America."

He urged them to set up an independent international commission of inquiry, one of the highest-ranking United Nations investigations, usually assigned to major crises, such as the Syrian conflict.

The trial proposal fell through

Such an investigation was proposed in an introductory text presented by 54 African countries on Tuesday.

But the resolution was lifted, following massive protests from Washington and its allies.

But the resolution was lifted, following massive protests from Washington and its allies.

It now calls on bachelorette and UN rights professionals to "establish the facts and circumstances of systemic racism, violate international human rights law and abuse of persons of African and African descent" in the US and in particular by law enforcement. Calls. Because of the events leading to the deaths.

Its mission is to "ensure the accountability of the perpetrators and the prevention of victims."

In his statement to the council, Bachelet said Floyd's death was a public nuisance and that the protests were "the pinnacle of many generations of pain."

The former Chilean president said that "today's racial violence, systemic racism and discriminatory policing are failing to recognize the legacy of the slave trade and colonialism."

He stressed the need for amendments to centuries of violence and discrimination by "formal apologies, truth-telling processes, and re-evaluation of various forms."

The US for Transparency

On Tuesday, Trump issued an order to improve policing, calling for a ban on dangerous chokeholds - unless an officer's life is at risk.

Executive Order De-escalation encourages money to train, improve recruitment, share data on police with bad records, and support police in complex tasks involving people with mental or drug problems.

However, this has reduced demands in protests across the country.

US Ambassador to the United Nations in Geneva, Andrew Bremberg, said his country was ready to commit to addressing racial discrimination and injustice by quoting Trump's executive orders.

"We call on all governments to demonstrate the same level of transparency and accountability," he said.

"Sadly, there are many places in the world where governments can commit human rights violations, and many of the people who have gathered in Geneva are silent."

It remains to be seen whether the current draft resolution will be passed.

Australia, South Korea, and the Netherlands all issued statements in the chamber, which widely defended Washington's policy.

The Australian spokesman said: "We are confident that we can do fair justice on these transparent issues."

47 members of the United Nations Human Rights Council will vote on the resolution after an immediate debate, which is set to end on Thursday.

Wednesday is the fifth time in the council's 14-year history that it has agreed to hold an "emergency debate," which is like a special session, but at a regular session of the council.
