The death of Floyd has sparked vast protests and clashes in all 50 U.S. states, and they continue despite curfews introduced by USA authorities.

Following a large number of protests across the globe, which all 50 U.S. states participated in, Stand Up To Racism has arranged a doorstep protest for tonight, aiming to honour George Floyd and raise awareness for the #BlackLivesMatter campaign - which has gained huge traction following the tragic death of George Floyd, which was taken by the hands of a white officer in Minnesota.

"In our town where "The heart of a town lies in its people" that means ALL its people and we will shout along with all our brothers and sisters in the U.S., the United Kingdom & around the world that Black Lives Matter!"

But a post on the event's Facebook page is now asking people to stay at home over coronavirus concerns. We will be live-streaming the protest online and we ask that those of you who were wishing to attend, instead stay at home and tune into the livestream. The events unfolding in the United States of America are a product of hundreds of years of racism and oppression of black communities, which has led to countless lives lost.
