It's been five weeks since Derek Chauvin was convicted of murder, but the intersection of 38th and Chicago in Minneapolis where George Floyd was killed still has not reopened.
Flashback: Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey said he would reopen the intersection, now known as George Floyd Square, after the verdict.
Driving the news: Frey told the AP late last week that the city will move toward a phased reopening and "safe and peaceful reconnection" after the one-year anniversary of Floyd's death.
- Worth noting: That promise, like the last one, didn't come with a specific timeline.
Yes, but: Activists guarding the area said they will not agree to a reopening until a long list of demands is met, from recalling Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman to investing $156 million over the next 10 years in community services.
