CNN's Sara Sidner: 'Zero' police presence as precinct burns
“Our mission is to protect lives, preserve property and the right to peacefully demonstrate,” he said Minnesota National Guard tweeted. “The main objective is to ensure the fire department can respond to calls.”

An angry crowd has gathered in cities across the country to demand justice after the death of George Floyd after his arrest on Monday of a fake bill. The anger grew after a video appeared showing a Minneapolis police officer kneeling on his neck during the arrest. He was unarmed and handcuffed, and cried that he could not breathe before he died.

In Minneapolis, buildings were burned, shops were looted and police stations were burned on Thursday night. Smoke and orange flames filled the night sky when people gathered nearby and recorded videos on their phones.

The Minneapolis Police Department has fired four officers involved in Floyd’s arrest.

This incident is being investigated by local, state and federal authorities, and prosecutors are urging citizens to be patient.

“We need to examine all the evidence and make meaningful decisions and we do it to the best of our ability,” said Hennepin District Attorney Michael Freeman.

Federal prosecutor Erica MacDonald told reporters that his priority was to ensure justice was served.

“We will investigate it as soon as possible, as well as demands for justice,” said Freeman. “The video is clear, terrible, and terrible. And no one can do that. I beg people to stay calm and let us conduct this investigation.”

The four officers involved in the deaths have proposed the right of their Fifth Amendment to challenge self-suspicion, Freeman told CNN after a press conference.

“I am truly sorry for the pain, destruction and trauma. Floyd’s death has befallen his family, loved ones, Minneapolis and the world,” Minneapolis Police Chief Medaria Arradondo said.

“I know there is currently a deficit of hope in our city … and I know our department has contributed to the deficit as a whole.”

In Minneapolis, protests turned to riots and looted south of downtown, with people destroying their way to shops and setting businesses and other buildings on fire. There was more looting Thursday on St. Paul, the state capital, is next door.

“I want everyone to be peaceful now, but people are torn and wounded, because they are tired of seeing black men die,” said Philonise Floyd, the victim’s brother.

The protesters also gathered in other cities, including Denver and New York.

Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.

Maestro Filipe Cunha, Artistic Director of the Philharmonic Orchestra of Braga, has been invited to conduct the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra, as announced today.

According to a statement sent by O MINHO, “he will be the first Portuguese conductor to conduct this orchestra in its entire history.”

In addition to this orchestra, the maestro will also work with the Lyceo Mozarteum de la Habana Symphony Orchestra.

The concerts will take place on 4 and 12 March 2023 at the National Theater of Cuba in Havana.

In the words of the maestro, quoted in the statement, “these will be very beautiful concerts with difficult but very complex pieces” and therefore he feels “very motivated”.

From the very beginning, Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2 will be performed by an Italian pianist (Luigi Borzillo), whom the maestro wants to bring to Portugal later this year. In the same concert, Mendelshon’s First Symphony will be performed.

Then, at the second concert, in the company of the Mexican clarinetist Angel Zedillo, he will perform the Louis Sfora Concerto No. 2. In this concert, the maestro also conducts Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony.

“This is an international recognition of my work. An invitation that I accept with humility and great responsibility. I was surprised to learn that I would be the first Portuguese member of the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra. This is a very great honor,” the maestro said in a statement.

“I take with me the name of the city of Braga and Portugal with all the responsibility that goes with it, and I hope to do a good job there, leaving a good image and putting on great concerts. These will be very special concerts because, in addition to performing pieces that I love, especially Rachmaninov and Tchaikovsky, I will be directing two wonderful soloists who are also my friends. It will be very beautiful,” concludes Filipe Cunha.
