If we believe, as Reverend King did, that "injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere" then these individuals need to be called out for carrying a banner, representing Daniel Ortega, a dictator who uses his security forces to murder, torture and rape opponents in Nicaragua to maintain power. Ortega has a lot more in common with Derek Chauvin, and has been placing his knee on the necks of Nicaraguans collectively for years jailing and killing many.

Why would advocates for justice for George Floyd associate with people carrying such a loathsome symbol?
Should they not show solidarity for the victims of Daniel Ortega and not march together with his supporters?
What would George Floyd do?
