PROTESTERS vowed to camp outside the US embassy in London this evening in solidarity with the the family of Michael Brown, shot dead by a police officer in the US.
They will assemble in Grosvenor Square from 5.30pm to call for justice after a grand jury in Ferguson, Missouri, deemed Darren Wilson innocent of illegally killing Mr Brown.
“It is really important for us to show solidarity globally when there is injustice and racism,” Black Activists Rising Against the Cuts (Barac) co-chair Zita Holbourne told the Star
“People are relating to it because there are similar cases going on here.”
Barac will host a vigil in the square along with the National Union of Students black students’ campaign, London Black Revs and Defend the Right to Protest.
Thousands are expected to attend with almost 1,500 people confirming their support on Facebook alone.
“There are families concerned every day that this could be their family, this could be happening to them, not to mention the institutional racism we experience here from the police and other institutions which is very similar to the USA,” added Ms Holbourne.
“It’s important for the families and the people in Ferguson to see that there are people who do care, that understand what they are going through and are showing solidarity.
“I think it helps to give strength to those who are going through it right now to see other people standing up with them.”
