Many have queried the remarkable coordination of the George Floyd protests around America and beyond, but footage in three separate places capture a pile of bricks appearing in rioting hot spots.
In Manhattan, a pile of bricks was left out in a construction area, caught on camera and uploaded to social media in a tweet that read: ““Yo, we got bricks. We got bricks!”—#Rioters in Manhattan chanced upon a cache in the street equipped with bricks and a shovel at 10:01 p.m. on Second Ave between St. Marks Pl. and Seventh St.”

Different angles in Fayetteville show impressive stacks of bricks.
One man in Fayetteville, in an unrelated clip, accidentally set himself on fire when failing to properly throw a Molotov cocktail at a building.

The emergence of these bricks close to rioting hot spots had many pointing the finger at neoliberal billionaire philanthropist financier George Soros.
And finally, in Dallas, Texas, a citizen commented on a pallet of bricks that appeared outside Dallas City Hall.
Via National File:
In video footage from Dallas, Texas, a pallet of bricks appeared outside of Dallas City Hall as rioters across the country continue to damage property and loot almost unabated, while authorities in some areas adopt a questionable “hands-off” approach.
In the footage, the stack of bricks is set up on the middle of the pavement. The person filming tells their viewers: “this right here? This is a set up,” while the other person said: “they put this here on purpose, bro.”
As the walk away from the bricks, they inform that there are no construction sites nearby. One of the men asks: “where do them bricks go to?”
“Ain’t no damn construction around here,” he added, before continuing, “y’all just gonna set up a pallet of bricks right here, aww, ok?”
“I did jury duty three months ago, y’all don’t keep no bricks right there–do better,” he concluded.
The protests have managed to reach Europe as thousands protest against racism and police brutality.
