 Black Lives Matter

Staines, 6 Jun 2020

I was sitting at my computer at home when I heard large shouting in the distance and was told it was a Black Lives Matter protest at Spelthorne Council Offices.

I grabbed my camera bag, in my hurry forgetting to pick up a mask and rushed to the footpath leading to the council offices, meeting a group of around a hundred young people coming up the path towards me. It was one of many protests organised spontaneously by individuals in towns and cities across the country following the release of a video online showing the murder of George Floyd.

They were shouting 'Black Lives Matter' and 'I can't Breathe' in protest againsthis killing and others who have died at the hands of police in the USA and here in the UK. The protesters 'took the knee' at the side of the old Town Hall before marching down the High St into the Two Rivers shopping park where they staged a silent die-in for 8 minutes 46 seconds, the time Floyd was restrained by a police officer.
