Looks like the NFL protest in the United States that have been going on for over a year to protest police brutality and social injustices has now went international.

Players and staff of German Bundesliga team Hertha Berlin linked arms and kneeled in solidarity with NFL players before their match against FC Schalke on Saturday.

Fans who don’t follow the NFL and were confused by what they were doing got an explanation from the stadium announcer stating, “Berlin is colorful,” the PA announcer reportedly said. “Hertha BSC stands for diversity and against violence. For this reason, we are joining forces with the protest of our fellow American athletes to take a stand against discrimination. For a tolerant Berlin, both now and forevermore.”

Last season, former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick started the movement, which has been harshly criticized by President Donald Trump for weeks, which has prompted even more demonstrations from players.
