A controversial gesture, the violence of protesters, at the latest, since the murder of George Floyd in the past year, the Symbol of the racist police and protesters, and also in Europe by many athletes be applied.
Even the European football Association Uefa, the sanctioned otherwise, any political Expression strictly, has given her blessing, and the players impunity to say, the challenge in this way, “equality among the people”.
The players of FC Arsenal kneel
