The death of 46-year-old Floyd led to violent demonstrations in Minneapolis and other American cities about police brutality against African Americans.

Former Home and Away actress Pia Miller wrote, “We must actively recognize and tackle intolerance and racism.”

“We should learn and listen as much as possible. It is not enough just to be neutral and live life. We have to do the work. ‘
