Event

New York City's Mayor Bill de Blasio extended the existing citywide curfew until at least Sunday, June 7. The nighttime curfew will also be in effect for longer, starting at 20:00 until 05:00 (local time). The extension of the curfew comes following hundreds of arrests during protests across the city. The Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) will be continuing operations during curfew hours, but only for essential workers.

Further protests and associated unrest are possible in the coming days

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.
