In this multimedia reportage, the New York Times narrates the protests in Portland. By using maps and photographs, The New York Times manages to convey all the anger of the protesters, who did not let the Covid-19 epidemic stop them and who took to the streets in search for justice after the death of George Floyd.
The Black Lives Matter movement and the revolts bring us back to 1968, when a four-day protest in Washington Dc would change America forever – those days of protest have been recounted by the Washington Post with a multimedia reportage.
Going back to 2020, and precisely in Washington, during a night of protests two American military helicopters flew over the streets swarmed by protesters in a sort of “demonstration of strength” trying to scare away demonstrators. The two low-flying helicopters have generated winds comparable to those of a tropical storm, as the Washington Post recounts here.
Between 2019 and 2020, the Black Lives Matter protest has not been an isolated case; indeed, students and activists have taken to the streets of Hong Kong for more than 100 days, and their story is told by the South China Morning Post.
