The Workers Party of Bangladesh, a partner of Awami League-led alliance, on Saturday demanded clear stand of Bangladesh government on the killing of George Floyd in the United States by police.

George Floyd, an unarmed black man, was killed in Minneapolis, Minnesota, United States on May 25. During the arrest, a white police officer Derek Chauvin kept his knee on the side of Floyd’s neck for almost nine minutes while Floyd was handcuffed and lying face down.

While addressing a rally at Central Shaheed Minar by the party’s Dhaka city unit protesting at the killing, the party president Rashed Khan Menon virtually connected with the event and said that it was unfortunate that the government and foreign ministry did not make any comment on the killing.

Referring to the huge anti-racism movements in the US — also spreading in different countries in Europe — Menon said that Donald Trump government was facing problems to tackle such movements.

Menon also called on the left and democratic political parties to be united to wage movements against racism in the US.

Chaired by the party’s Dhaka city unit president Abul Hossain, party’s politburo members Mustafa Lutfullah, Quamrul Ahsan, city secretary Kishore Roy and Sadakat Hossain Khan Babul spoke at the rally.
