Finally, we can breathe.

On this day of Tuesday, the 20th of April 2021, the 12 member jury has found the former police officer Derek Chauvin guilty of murder over the death of African-American George Floyd on a Minneapolis street last year on 25 May 2020.

Chauvin was found guilty on all three charges: second-degree murder, third-degree murder and manslaughter.

US President Joe Biden and Vice-President Kamala Harris called the Floyd family after the verdict. 

In nationally televised remarks shortly afterwards, Mr Biden said: 'Systemic racism is a stain on the whole nation's soul.'

Video filmed by bystanders showed Chauvin's knee pressed into Mr Floyd's neck and back for almost nine minutes as he gasped for breath.

Transcripts of the minutes leading up to George Floyd’s death reveal he told officers “I can’t breathe” more than 20 times, only to have his plea dismissed by Derek Chauvin

'We can't let these words die with Floyd' - said President Biden.

Let us keep Martin Luther King Jr's immortal alert message high : 'Injustice anywhere is threat to justice everywhere'.

We in Voice For Justice, felt that Justice has been served and done for George Floyd.

It is a response to the systemic and institutional racism that endangers peace and harmony of our greater human family on this beautiful planet.

Let this verdict be a lesson to racists, everywhere in the world, for all times to come.
