Justice 4 Grenfell activists would like to send solidarity to the communities of Minneapolis, who are protesting after the assassination of George Floyd by a police officer on Monday, with two other police officers assisting and one officer standing by and doing nothing.
They are protesting because they are grieving, angry and traumatised from consistent state violence inflicted on black people by the police. They are standing up for their brothers and sisters across America. We see our struggle of resistance as a shared struggle. Police violence against BAME people and against working class communities exists in the UK, too. From Minneapolis to London, from Orgreave to Southall, from Brixton to Notting Hill,, working class people, black and white must stand together to overturn a system which has persecution and inequality as the heart of its establishment.
Rest in Peace and Power George Floyd.
