Black Lives Matter

The Black Lives Matter movement was set up in the US in 2013 in response to the brutal treatment of the police towards people of colour.

In late May 2020 the murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis sparked outrage and demonstrations globally showing solidarity to BLM. Police officer Derek Chauvin, who shot Floyd was later unanimously found guilty, so strengthening the groundswell for justice.

These images reference three of numerous murders of unarmed black adults between
