Canadian and International media widely covered the event where Prime Minister Justin Trudeau took a knee while attending a demonstration on Parliament Hill. The demonstration was organized to protest racial injustice and police brutality.
Some in the crowd shouted at him to stand up to U.S. President Donald Trump.
The Ottawa event was organized by No Peace Until Justice, formed by a young Black woman. The goal was to bring together Black activists and organizations and allies to stand in solidarity against police brutality and societal racism.
