#BlackLivesMatter London (Videos)

Over the weekend hundreds took to the streets of London in protest over the brutal police killings of two black men in America.

Alton Sterling, a 37-year-old father was fatally shot by police in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, on Tuesday (July 5). He had been selling CDs outside a store when two police officers approached him, slammed him to the ground and then proceeded to shoot him in the chest and back, six times.

On the following day, 32-year-old Philando Castile was fatally wounded in his car by an officer who believed he was reaching for a gun. Castile was sitting in the car with his girlfriend Diamond Reynolds and their 4-year-old daughter at the time.

Peaceful protests took place in the Southbank area (July 8), Brixton (July 9) and today (July 10) in Oxford Circus through to Westminster. 

It is good to see so many here (especially the younger generation) marching in solidarity with our US brothers and sisters. However don’t be misguided in to thinking life is “all good” for black Britain’s and that racism, police brutality and deaths in custody is just an American problem, like the famous, misinformed and black man in crisis (boxer David Haye) did below…

FOOL! 😡 #blackbritain #clueless #davidhaye #racism #blacklivesmatter #policebrutality #nojoke
