Black Londoner explains George Floyd protester support with story of how cops murdered his brother

“It resonates,” he replied. “400 years we’ve been having to deal with this and we’re still being lynched and murdered today.”

“My brother was shot and killed by the police in this country,” he recalled. ” He was shot four times in his back and the policemen’s evidence when he stood up in court was that my brother was facing him — the courts accepted that evidence.”
“To highlight this injustice cannot continue,” he exclaimed. “I believe that this is — this is a different assault, this is a different murder and we can see the protests going on around the world. We have just had enough. Everybody has had enough of these live lynchings. Look at the CNN reporter that got arrested, live on television, where everybody saw exactly what happened.”


There were thousands on the streets of London today. This murder is resonating far and wide. Difficult conversation are being had not just in America. The injustice that people recognise is part of a systemic issue that resonates back centuries, for minority communities, all over the West.
