Protests turn into looting

Luxury stores were looted over the weekend amid protests over the death of George Floyd. High-end retailers in areas such as SoHo were already on board, while retail stores were closing worldwide due to the coronavirus pandemic.

During this first weekend riots, police said they arrested around 250 people on Sunday evening, up from 340 on Saturday. Some were arrested outside Soho stores, where looters emptied bags from city garbage cans and filled them with high-end store goods.

Are USA riots encouraged ?

There is evidence that demonstrations in the United States are being encouraged to turn into riots or even looting.

Various police sources confirm that groups are coordinating the current riots. Although it is unclear who is funding this movement.

Even if this situation does not threaten the integrity of the territory, it could nevertheless pave the way for a cultural confrontation between the communities that share the country.
