The North American soccer League (MLS) has allowed players to get down on one knee during a performance of the national anthems before the matches. This is the official website of the League.

“MLS supports the ideals of freedom of speech and the right to peaceful protest, which are hallmarks of USA and Canada”, — said in a statement.

Dozens of U.S. cities covered protests accompanied by riots. They began after the death in Minneapolis of a black guard to George Floyd, who died after a rough arrest.

Protests against police brutality held in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Denver, new York, Indianapolis, Boston, Detroit and many other cities. After the death of Floyd protesters and sympathetic citizens of the United States began to publicly get down on one knee in memory of the deceased, as well as protesting against the police action and harassment of blacks.
