Thousands of origami hearts to support San Francisco's Asian community


A San Francisco paper store is displaying thousands of origami hearts with positive messages, to show support for the Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) community in the city after a wave of anti-Asian attacks. Linda Mihara, an origami artist and owner of the paper store "Paper Tree", says she has received over 4,000 origami hearts, which she displays in her store's window. "I wanted to do something that would counter the hate," she says. "And so, the best way to counter the hate is with love."

  • Thousands march in San Francisco for black rights

    At least ten thousand protesters attend a youth-led black rights rally in San Francisco demanding justice and equality for black people, one week after the death of George Floyd. Floyd's death has reignited long-felt anger over police killings of African-Americans and unleashed a nationwide wave of civil unrest unlike any seen in the US since King's 1968 assassination. Three of the four Minneapolis police officers who arrested Floyd on May 25 for allegedly passing a counterfeit bill were to make their first court appearance, meanwhile, to face charges of aiding and abetting his murder. The fourth policeman, white officer Derek Chauvin, who was filmed kneeling on Floyd's neck for nearly nine minutes as he said "I can't breathe," has been charged with second-degree murder and appeared before a judge last week.
