A mural of George Floyd — a man who died in police custody in Minneapolis — has popped up in Victoria.
The mural was painted by local airbrush artist, Paul Archer as a way to commemorate Floyd’s death.
Widely seen bystander video showing Floyd’s May 25 death has sparked sometimes violent protests nationwide and around the world. Protests quickly spread to cities around the world. Prosecutors are charging a Minneapolis police officer accused of pressing his knee against Floyd’s neck with second-degree murder.
A peace rally and vigil for Floyd is being held in Victoria’s Centennial Square on Sunday, starting at 4 p.m.
To see the mural, visit Archer’s shop at 847 Fort St.
