British BLM announced that it will “continue the fight” after the conviction of Derek Chauvin

By A.S.

Despite the guilty verdict on the trial of Derek Chauvin the BLM are not satisfied and have announced that they will keep on fighting against »white supremacy”, and for the “defunding of the police”.

The UK branch of the BLM movement, which appeared after the leftist protest instigated by the death of George Floyd spread to Europe has announced on Twitter that they will continue the fight in the name of all the “Black people across the globe who live knowing this verdict will not prevent future abuses of police violence and police killings.”

The verdict was also celebrated by some of the British politicians. The Mayor of London Sadiq Khan stated: “My thoughts are with George Floyd’s loved ones. I welcome the verdict but by itself, this won’t heal the pain of their loss, which reverberated around the world.” He added that “The guilty verdict must be the beginning of real change – not the end.«

And the British Prime Minister Boris Johnson was also happy with the verdict: “I was appalled by the death of George Floyd and welcome this verdict. My thoughts tonight are with George Floyd’s family and friends.”
