House Speaker, Nancy Pelosi, and Senate Democratic minority leader, Chuck Schumer, joined the political movement amid protests over the death of George Floyd at the hands of a policeman.

The tribute lasted 8 minutes and 46 seconds, the same length of time Floyd would have been subdued with a cop’s knee in Minneapolis.

Pelosi, who like other legislators wore a colorful scarf with African motifs, spoke afterwards of the «martyrdom of George Floyd» and the grief over people of color killed at the hands of police.
