George Floyd protests continue across the country for an 11th straight day

Bad weather has failed to stop thousands of people from taking to the streets in Washington, D.C. as George Floyd protests continue across the country for an 11th consecutive day. 

On Friday afternoon, demonstrators donned raincoats and propped up umbrellas alongside their placards as rain poured over the nation's capital. 

But despite the drenching, the protesters persisted in their calls for police reform and an end to systemic racism as they marched down Pennsylvania Avenue.  

Several stopped outside new fortress-style fencing erected around the front of the White House to savage President Trump and his reaction to their peaceful protests. 

Meanwhile, there were powerful scenes in other cities across the country, with thousands turning out to take a knee in Hermosa Beach, California and demonstrators lying in front of the Orlando Police Department in Florida. 

In Jackson, Mississippi outraged  residents stood outside the state's Capitol Building  to protest the Attorney General's recent decision to drop a manslaughter charge against a white officer who had been charged in the October 2015 shooting death of black man Ricky Ball.
