George Floyd's grieving brother said he is "proud of protests, not destruction" in an emotional plea for peace on Thursday - just hours before crowds defied New York City's curfew again.

“You are not alone,” the large crowd at Brooklyn's Cadman Plaza chanted before a grief-stricken Terrence Floyd as he thanked them for their support of his brother at a memorial in the city.

"I thank God for you all showing love to my brother," he told supporters at the massive gathering - while the rest of his family gathered for the first of three memorials in Minneapolis.

"I'm proud of the protests but I’m not proud of the destruction. My brother wasn’t about that.

"The Floyd's are a God-fearing family. Power to the people, all of us," Terrence added.
