Event

According to the New York City Emergency Management Agency (NYCEM) on Sunday, May 31, simultaneous demonstrations are ongoing as of 17:00 (local time) in multiple locations across the city. The NYCEM's Notify NYC system has warned of protest activity and a heavy presence of emergency personnel in the vicinity of the following locations; Union Square and Fort Tryon Parks in Manhattan, the Barclays Center and McCarren Park in Brooklyn, and Flushing Meadow Park in Queens.

Further protests and unrest are likely in the area in the near term.

Context

George Floyd died while being arrested by Minneapolis police officers on May 25. The four arresting police officers were subsequently fired, and one has since been charged with murder. Black Lives Matter (BLM) supporters gathered on May 26 to denounce the death and actions of the police officers. Clashes ensued between protesters and riot police; with demonstrators throwing bricks and projectiles at police and police property, and police responding with tear gas and rubber bullets as they attempted to disperse the crowds. Protests have since spread to a number of cities across the US.

Advice

Individuals in the greater New York City area and across metropolitan areas in the US are advised to monitor developments, avoid all protests as a precaution, and adhere to all instructions issued by local authorities.
