Riots in the largest cities of the United States: the National Guard was called to the aid of the police

A wave of violence, after the riots in Minneapolis, covered Atlanta, Portland, Oakland, New York, Washington and other cities across the country

Riots swept the largest American cities. At first in Minneapolis, peaceful protests turned violent, with the looting of shopping malls and the burning of a police station. Following this, riots broke out in Atlanta: rioters smashed police cars and the entrance to the CNN headquarters building. In Portland, Oregon, protesters broke into a police station, and hundreds of people gathered in front of the White House in Washington, DC, chanting curses at President Donald Trump..

Protest in Portland, Oregon

The reason for the mass protests was the death of George Floyd, an African American who was detained by police in Minneapolis. However, the situation is compounded by the economic crisis caused by the coronavirus pandemic and skyrocketing unemployment..

As unrest spreads across the country, local authorities are increasingly claiming that they may need the help of national guardsmen or even military police. On Saturday morning, Georgia’s governor declared a state of emergency in order to use the National Guard to quell the outbreak of violence in Atlanta. Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler also declared a state of emergency and introduced a curfew in the city..
