U.S. Embassy in South Korea displays a Black Lives Matter banner
The embassy previously posted on social media that it hung up an LGBT rainbow banner.
The United States Embassy in South Korea announced that it is displaying a Black Lives Matter banner.
"The U.S. Embassy stands in solidarity with fellow Americans grieving and peacefully protesting to demand positive change," a Facebook post explains. "Our #BlackLivesMatter banner shows our support for the fight against racial injustice and police brutality as we strive to be a more inclusive & just society."
The move comes as protests have erupted across the U.S. in the wake of the May 25 death of George Floyd in Minnesota.
The embassy in a May 31 post highlighted its display of a rainbow LGBT Pride banner.
"The U.S. Embassy is displaying a rainbow banner on our Chancery in support of fundamental freedoms and human rights for all. #PRIDE2020 #LGBTI #EqualProtection," the post said.
