The tragic death of George Floyd, a 46-year-old African-American killed by a Minneapolis police officer on 25 May, has led to protests and public outcry against all forms of discrimination, not only in the United States but in several other countries.
In a gesture of solidarity, Youth for Peace, a movement of teens and young people affiliated with the Saint Egidio Community, has organized a flash mob against all forms of racism, social discrimination and violence.
The event was preceded by a prayer for peaceful coexistence in the world. Young people have also displayed a banner on the façade of the Basilica of San Bartolomeo located on the Tiber Island, and illuminated the surrounding square with hundreds of candles.
