Black Lives Matter: Manchester, 07.06.2020

On Sunday, June 7th, thousands gathered in St Peter's Square for a second day of protests by the Black Lives Matter movement against the killing of George Floyd and every kind of racial injustice. The most powerful moment came just minutes after 2pm, when the crowd was invited to take a silent knee for eight minutes and 46 seconds - the length of time Derek Chauvin had his knee on George Floyd's neck. There were speeches and declarations promoting awareness and unity as well as a chorus of angry voices proclaiming an end to racial injustices. Despite the genuine depth of feeling in the crowd, it was incredibly peaceful. These are a selection of photographs I took.
