Black Lives Matter Protest, London 2020

This is the age of the media prism which now affects everything we see online, like virtual reality headset controlled by other interests. When it comes to such a charged and politicised issue such as the murder of black people by police, getting to the streets to hear the voices in your ears, see the unity and outrage with your eyes, and feel the deep emotions with your heart is crucial.

Everyone in the reporting media, both social and traditional, has a motive. But these protestors only sought to describe their experiences, their hopes and fears, and to share ideas with anyone who cares to listen.

It's the core of democracy, the way our society stays healthy. It's the way our culture renews itself, as any culture must do if it's not to collapse beneath its past.
