George Floyd killing: Washington expecting biggest march yet as mourners prepare for second memorial service – live | US news

The killing of George Floyd took place thousands of miles from the UK, but the anger and pain that sparked mass protests in the US has resonated deeply across the Atlantic.

Last weekend, protests sprung up sporadically in Cardiff, London, Manchester, and Nottingham to state clearly that “Black Lives Matter” in the UK as well.

The protesters, the vast majority of whom were under 30, chanted: “No justice, no peace, no racist police” and “the UK is not innocent”, in a demonstration that was largely organised through word of mouth and social media away from established anti-racism groups.

Teenagers, who said they had grown up with videos of black people dying on their timelines, shouted: “Enough is enough.”
