Oakland artists pay tribute
to the memory of George Floyd
and the Black Lives Matter movement
in a series of murals around the city
painted onto boarded up windows
(SOUNDBITE) (English) AIREON TAVARRES, ORGANIZER, SAYING:
"It's all creativity and people are going to express themselves how they want to express themselves. So we got a lot of different things. We have a lot different pieces, but it's all peaceful. It's all unity. It's all just about love."
Several dozen artists have spray painted
slogans and pictures in support
of anti-police brutality protests
around the world
(SOUNDBITE) (English) DUSTIN YOUNG, ARTIST, SAYING:
"It's the rampant abuse of power. It's been in our society for far too long and it's undeniable to anyone now. This isn't my fight, but I am here to follow the lead of my brothers and sisters who have been aggrieved for generations. I'm here to do what I can."
