In the crowd, many people wear t-shirts bearing the names of victims such as Sabri, who died on May 16 on a motorbike in Argenteuil after having crossed the path of a BAC car or Gueye Camara, who died in January 2018 after being shot in the head, shot by a police officer in Épinay-sur-Seine (Seine-Saint-Denis).

You are all there for George Floyd, but when the same thing happens in France, there is nobody! "

Shortly before 7 p.m., the crowd kneels in tribute to the symbol of the American black man killed by the Minneapolis police and to the French victims of police violence. "No justice no peace" resonates. For Marie, in her twenties, it is the "system" as a whole that must be reviewed: "Let’s stop telling ourselves that the victims always come across a cop who is the black sheep of the team. Most of the IGPN investigations (the police force, note) end in non-places, recalls the young woman, echoing the podcast of Arte Radio revealing the racist and fascist projections of the Rouen police officers on a WhatsApp group. We can no longer continue with this logic. We are the generation of tomorrow. It's up to us to give voice. ”
