Thousands of Black Lives Matter protesters marched across central London on Sunday to protest against the killing of George Floyd, an unarmed black man by police in the US.

Protesters gathered in Trafalgar Square could be heard chanting ‘I can’t breathe’, while holding up signs saying “Justice for George Floyd”, who died in police custody while a white officer, Derek Chauvin, knelt on his neck to pin him down.
In a video of the arrest of Mr Floyd, he could be heard begging, “I can’t breathe” last Monday in Minneapolis, before he died while being restrained.

The protests have been held at Trafalgar Square and outside the US Embassy in Battersea, south London, chanting “say his name: George Floyd” and “no justice, no peace, no racist police”.
They also held up placards saying “racism has no place”, and “I can’t breathe”.

Quote
Black Lives Matter said: “We are doing this to place pressure on the American government and show that this is a world wide issue.”

The Met Police said officers were present and were engaging with those in attendance.

Hundreds of people marched through Peckham in south London on Saturday in protest against police brutality.

It’s a pity our African ANCESTORS who were COMPLICIT in the SLAVE TRADE are NOT alive to see the consequences of their actions.

Our African ancestors sold their KITH  and KIN ( men, women AND children) for bottles of gin and tobacco.

The bottle of gin and the rolls of tobacco are long finished - but the ancestors of those sold - the African Americans continue to be treated like SLAVES!!
