George Floyd protests

Thousands have gathered near City Hall and the Art Museum for peaceful protests against police brutality, taking part in a nationwide movement decrying the system that allowed the recent murders of George Floyd in Minneapolis, Mn., Breonna Taylor in Louisville, Ky., Ahmaud Arbery in Glynn County, Ga., and others.

On several nights, Philly protests were followed by different groups of people vandalizing, breaking into and robbing businesses in neighborhoods from Port Richmond to Germantown, despite Mayor Jim Kenney’s order of a citywide curfew.
