An anti-racism campaign group has urged people across the UK to ‘take the knee’ on their doorsteps for a socially distanced protest in solidarity with protesters in the US.

The campaign has been organised by Stand Up to Racism UK (SUTR) and follows protests in the US and around the world, held in response to the death of George Floyd.

 

The 46-year-old died last week after a police officer held him down by pressing his knee into his neck.

The US has since erupted in riots from people demanding justice, and other countries across the world have begun to take action.

The protest will take place at 6 pm asking for anyone willing to take action to hold up a sign with #Blacklivesmatter & #JusticeforGeorgeFloyd
