As the U.K's population actively complied with new national social restrictions and observed the Conservative Government fumble their way through the Covid19 pandemic something was about to erupt. Within an atmosphere of fear, confusion, and separation in the community, the spirit of unity, solidarity, and equality rose following the killing of George Floyd in the U.S and the resulting transnational anti-racism movement.
Black Lives Matter is an organised activist movement at the forefront of the recent demonstrations in London, advocating for non-violent civil disobedience in protest against incidents of police brutality against Black people.
This project is a record of London’s involvement with the ongoing global anti-racism movement, sparked by the unlawful killing of George Floyd, a 46-year-old black man, in Minneapolis, Minnesota, by a white Police officer during an arrest for allegedly using a counterfeit bill.
These photograph were taken at the recent anti-racism demonstrations in London, commencing on the 31st May 2020.
An ongoing project.
