Thousands of protesters gather against police violence on Tuesday evening in court in Paris at the call of the family support committee of Adama Traoré, a 24-year-old black man who died in 2016 after his arrest, despite the ‘The police prefect’s ban on assembly has been observed by an AFP journalist .
“Today, it is no longer just the fight of the Traoré family, it is your fight with all of you (…). Today, when we fight for Georges Floyd, we fight for Adama Traoré “said Assa Traore, Adama’s older sister, in front of protesters who chanted” Revolt “or” Everyone hates the police “.
The death of George Floyd, a 46-year-old black man asphyxiated by a white police officer in the United States , has sparked protests in the United States for the past week against police brutality, racism and social inequality.
Among the many demonstrators gathered on the forecourt of the new courthouse in Paris and in the surrounding streets, young people of all origins, but also “yellow vests”, gathered behind signs “We will not be silent”, “Silence = asphyxiation “or” Decolonize the police “.
Zoé Pezron and Emma Courtinat, two art history students, display “Black Lives Matter” and “Racism and hate have no place here” signs. The two girls had never participated in a demonstration for Adama Traoré. The death of George Floyd was “the last straw”.
“We believe that it is necessary to fight against the police violence that plagues society. In France , the situation does not start yesterday. We are the future generations and we must move to make a difference”, say -they.
Didier Balguy wears a “Justice for Adama” t-shirt. At 46, this employee of the Paris town hall is a regular at the protests at the call of the Traore family.
“Everyone is offended by what happened with George Floyd and denounces two-speed justice, but the public itself has a two-speed judgment”, he sighs, deploring that he a dead man in the United States is needed to mobilize French youth.
For him, the situation in the United States is very different from that in France. “It has nothing to do with racism in the USA, it is in their DNA: they started by massacring the Indians and it remains a country of cowboys.” “In France, it’s more vicious,” he judges, denouncing the facies controls. “I have already been asked why a + negro + has papers,” he said.
On July 19, 2016, Adama Traoré died in the Persan barracks, almost two hours after his arrest in Beaumont-sur-Oise (Val-d’Oise) after a chase with the gendarmes.
