American Embassy in Mexico Attacked Over George Floyd's Murder

Anarchists protesting the death of George Floyd descended on the walled-off compound housing the US embassy in Mexico on Friday and proceeded to tag the streets and throw projectiles at the building.

Dozens gathered on the street on Friday outside the diplomatic building, which is located in Paseo de la Reforma, Mexico City.

Masked citizens also physically hit the wall and tagged it with messages in support of the protest.

Streets and nearby vehicles and cars were also spray-painted with George’s Floyd’s face, and slogans against the police.

Demonstrations over the police killing of Floyd in Minneapolis, Minnesota, last Monday have grown increasingly revolutionary, with people in Minneapolis pushing the police out and burning down a precinct. Across cities in the US, people have been shooting at police, running them down in their cars and fighting them back.
