All Black Lives rally in BristolDownload
© Licensed to London News Pictures; 16/08/2020; Bristol, UK. An All Black Lives UK rally and march takes place from College Green in front of Bristol City Hall to Castle Park, passing the empty plinth where the statue of Edward Colston was pulled down at an earlier protest in June. An All Black Lives UK protest is also taking place in London today. In Bristol in June 2020 the statue of slave trader Edward Colston was pulled down with ropes and thrown into Bristol docks on 07 June during an All Black Lives/Black Lives Matter protest that made headlines around the world. A month later in July a new sculpture titled "A Surge of Power (Jen Reid) 2020" by artist Marc Quinn was put up without permission from Bristol City council. Jen Reid was at the previous protest on 07 June which was in protest for the memory of George Floyd, a black man who was killed on May 25, 2020 in Minneapolis in the US by a white police officer kneeling on his neck for nearly 9 minutes. The killing of George Floyd has seen widespread protests in the US, the UK and other countries. Photo credit: Simon Chapman/LNP.
