John Boyega, star of the final Star Wars trilogy and Pacific Rim 2 was out in force in London on Wednesday. Joining those protesting the unjust death of George Floyd. Watching the video below you can see that he is angry, saddened, and ready for a change.
During his powerful speech he states "Every black person in here remembers when another person reminded you that you are black. . .I need you to understand how painful this shit is. How painful it is to be remined everyday that your race means nothing..."
The video is definitely worth watching. There are things that need to change...and it's time to hold the ones in power accountable. The entire world has come together in a way like we've never seen before. Under the single roof of justice for all.
Protest are still going strong across the glove since the murder of George Floyd by members of the Minneapolis Police Department. And although police are acting unconstitutional and Donald Trump is threating to release the full power of the military. People in the US still stand against a corrupt regime bent on keeping black voices silent.
