Mancs stood together this weekend for the #BlackLivesMatter movement.
Following a large number of protests arranged across the globe, the people of Manchester stood together during a peaceful protest this weekend, raising awareness for the #BlackLivesMatter movement and the death of George Floyd – a man from Minnesota who was killed by a white police officer after being arrested on May 25, 2020.
Taking to the streets to kneel, come together and display signs with messages condemning violence and systematic racism, protesters marched around the city centre – passing St Ann’s Square, Peter Street and Market Street as they raised awareness for the campaign.
The protest was the first following the death of George Floyd for the city, however, two more events have been planned for this weekend, with the intentions remaining peaceful as campaigners continue to educate the world. Here are just some of the emotive images from this weekend’s protest.
