Black Lives Matter protestors marched through Peckham on Saturday, calling for an end to police brutality after the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis.
The unarmed 46-year-old died after being held down by four policemen – one kneeling on his neck – as he pleaded: “I can’t breathe”.
The peaceful protest in Peckham was held in solidarity with campaigners in the USA, and to highlight discrimination in the UK.
Demonstrators held a minute’s silence for all those who had died at the hands of police.

Incredible #BlackLivesMatter protest in Peckham – explicitly anti-capitalist and almost entirely young people. Chants of “stop killing the mandem” and “the UK is not innocent” ringing out. Solidarity ? #blm #justiceforgeorgefloyd #nojusticenopeace #justiceforbellymujinga pic.twitter.com/fkHQUUDY6f
