Abolition Struggle Ongoing in Minneapolis 2 Years After Police Killed George Floyd, Spurring Protests



Today marks two years since George Floyd was murdered by former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin. His death spurred a global movement for racial justice — and intensified the push for police accountability and abolition. For more, we go to Minneapolis to speak with Robin Wonsley Worlobah, longtime activist who was in the streets protesting the police killing of George Floyd and has since been elected as Minneapolis’s first Black Democratic Socialist city council member. She was part of a coalition successfully blocking the relocation of the 3rd Precinct police station, where Chauvin was based — which still sits vacant today.
