#BlackLivesMatter: UK Protesters Tear Down Colonial-Era Statue (Photos)

Posted by on June 8, 2020>



Activists filled public spaces in huge numbers for the second consecutive weekend to commemorate the death of George Floyd and demand an end to systemic racism — staging “die-ins” outside US embassies and even tearing down a statue of a former slave trader in the British town of Bristol.

In London, Rome, Madrid, Warsaw, Sydney, Hong Kong and countless other cities, protesters packed streets that have laid deserted for months to tell governments around the world that #BlackLivesMatter#

Some defied coronavirus lockdowns and warnings from politicians to do so. Many protesters wore masks during the weekend’s rallies, while some carried messages that racial inequality is also a public health crisis.

They marched in solidarity with tens of thousands in the US, whose protests on Saturday were the biggest yet since video of Floyd’s death at the hands of a white police officer ignited a wave of anger and action.
But they turned out to draw attention to racial injustice in their own nations, too.
