Mae protestiadau George Floyd yn gyfres barhaus o brotestiadau yn erbyn creulondeb a hiliaeth yr heddlu mewn plismona, a ddechreuodd yn yr Unol Daleithiau ym Minneapolis ar 26 Mai 2020.[1] Daeth y rhain yn dilyn lladd George Floyd, dyn du 46 oed, ar ôl i Derek Chauvin, heddwas gwyn, wthio ar wddf Floyd am bron i naw munud yn ystod arestiad.[2]

Y Digwyddiad[golygu | golygu cod y dudalen]

Dechreuodd yr aflonyddwch fel brotestiadau lleol yn ardal fetropolitan Minneapolis-Saint Paul yn Minnesota cyn ymledu yn gyflym ar draws y genedl gyfan ac yn rhyngwladol er mwyn gefnogi mudiad Black Lives Matter. Er bod mwyafrif y protestiadau wedi bod yn heddychlon, disgynnodd gwrthdystiadau [3] mewn rhai dinasoedd i derfysgoedd a ysbeilio eang[4] [5] gyda mwy yn cael eu nodi gan ysgarmesoedd stryd a thrais sylweddol gan yr heddlu, yn enwedig yn erbyn protestwyr a gohebwyr heddychlon.[6] [7] Roedd o leiaf 200 o ddinasoedd yn gosod cyrffyw erbyn Mehefin 3, tra bod o leiaf mwy na 30 o daleithiau a Washington DC, wedi actifadu dros 24,000 o bersonél y National Guard oherwydd yr aflonyddwch torfol. [8] [9] [10] [11] O ddechrau'r protestiadau hyd at Fehefin 3, roedd o leiaf 11,000 o bobl wedi cael eu harestio, [12] gan gynnwys pob un o'r pedwar heddwas a fu'n rhan o'r arestiad a arweiniodd at farwolaeth Floyd. [13]

Mae gweinyddiaeth Trump wedi tynnu beirniadaeth eang am ei ymateb caled, militaraidd a’i rethreg ymosodol.[14] Mae'r aflonyddwch hefyd yn digwydd yn ystod y pandemig COVID-19, gydag arbenigwyr iechyd yn rhybuddio y bydd y protestiadau yn debygol o hwyluso lledaeniad cyflym y firws. [15] [16]
