Despite heat levels reaching 25 degrees in London, The black lives matter protests are still going strong.
Although there was a shaky start, hundreds of young people marched from Southwark Park to parliament. Twitter played a significant part in directing lost protestors to the bigger group which not only rose awareness to the #black lives matter protest but proved there’s strength in numbers when it comes to issues regarding black communities.
Today’s protest was pleasantly positive and powerful as drivers, and foreigners throughout the city showed support by beeping there cars or chanting along to show that #blacklivematter is open to all races from all walks of life.
Currently #blacklivesmatter is still dominating social media and communities not only in the US but also the UK. The issues regarding equality and racial discrimination is still well and truly active but the question is, will change be on the horizon ?
