Riots in Minneapolis: “it’s a disaster”

Émeutes à Minneapolis: «c’est une catastrophe»

Police station set on fire, many shops looted, a confrontation between the protesters and the police: the riots in Minneapolis have taken a considerable size in a second night “very, very, eventful”, described Odile Hedoire-Young, Friday, at the microphone of Benoit Dutrizac.

The director-general of the Chamber of Franco-American Commerce and Industry in Minneapolis qualifies as a “disaster”, the crisis that tears apart the city that she lives in.

According to her, the vivid protests, which erupted Thursday night with several fires, witness the “anger towards the police of Minneapolis,” after the death of George Floyd, an African-American, 46 years old, in the hands of a police officer.

“It was the death of too many,” she started bluntly.
