London protest – Friday 12th June 1pm Marble Arch

Saturday protest has been moved to Friday 12 June 1pm

BLM groups have decided to let the racist thugs fight among themselves, so the march has been moved from Saturday to Friday 12th.

We have bigger fish to fry!

Assemble 1pm. March from Marble Arch to Downing Street.

Maintaining social distancing. Wear face masks. Brings your signs and placards.

Given the police fondness for kettling peaceful protesters, please bring a supply of food and water.

If you were arrested over the course of the past week or so, please call Green and Black Cross on 07946 541 511

Solidarity with US protesters – end police terrorism – the UK is not innocent – black lives matter UK future events

Solidarity with the US rebellion! Spread the resistance.

The Police are the outside agitators. The police are the instigators of violence. The rich are the real looters. Donald Trump is a thug and the UK is not innocent either. We have an illegitimate government led by a racist and elected on a pack of lies – a government that has promoted and imposed policies that have seen at least 63,000 people die. We have criminal racist government. End the hostile environment; Defund the police.

Justice for George Floyd and all those brutalised and murdered at the hands of the police in the US and UK.

It is extremely important that social distancing is enforced and respected at all protests. This government doesn’t care about the disproportionate number of black and minority ethnic people dying in this ongoing Covid pandemic. This is the same problem that confronts the protesters in the US, where people are having to risk their lives to protect lives. The protests below have been called by London BLM and are supported by BLMM. The BLM UK organisation that claims to be the “official” BLM group is not affiliated with any of the organisers.

Welcome to Black Lives Matter UK.

We are a group of people that got together on the demonstrations that erupted in the UK following the police murder of Alton Sperling and Philando Castile in the US. These demonstrations followed those that took place after the killing of Trayvon Martin and later Mike Brown in Ferguson. Enough is enough. We have to do something to show solidarity with the US struggle against racist policing and to highlight and fight racial injustice in the UK. Come to the meeting at Shacklewell Lane mosque, Dalston, Hackney on Wednesday 20th July. Let’s get organised!

Nearest stations: Dalston Junction, Dalston Kingsland
