Black Lives Matter peaceful protest set to be held in Wrexham this weekend
A peaceful protest is set to be held in North Wales this weekend as part of the #BlackLivesMatter campaign.
Thousands have already demonstrated across the UK this week to support the fight for racial equality.
They were sparked by the death of George Floyd, an African-American, who was killed in Minneapolis after a police officer held his knee against his neck.
The peaceful protest will take place in town on Sunday, starting at 1pm in Bellevue Park.
At 1:30pm attendees will kneel in a silent act of solidarity for two minutes.
Those who are shielding, have Covid 19 symptoms, are vulnerable are being asked not to attend.
Organisers have also issued advice surrounding social distancing due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Iolanda Banu Viegas said: “This is a peaceful and safe protest against hate crimes and violence around the world.
“It’s also Covid-19 times, for this we urge everyone to bring a face mask and hand sanitiser and always keep two meters apart from each other.
“Please be aware of the five mile radius from your home. We are still not allowed to travel in Wales.”
