And we cannot stay quiet as this is a global issue, a global pandemic of another kind that has been spreading for far too long. We stand with the peaceful protesters who are demonstrating against injustices and are trying to create real change in their country, we see you, we support you, we walk with you. #BlackLivesMatter #EndPoliceBrutality #FightRacism
