Black Lives Matter - Rally at Vicar's Oak - 7th June 2020

The image of a white policeman in Minneapolis subverting the idea of 'taking the knee' to subdue, and ultimately kill a black man named George Floyd is a horrific one, but the response to this sickening brutality has been overwhelming. Across the world people of all races and creeds have come together, despite the ongoing pandemic, and continuing police brutality, to express solidarity, and demand change. 
Here at the Vicar's Oak entrance to the park, Crystal Palace's own Speaker's Corner, local people marked those terrible 9 minutes in Minneapolis, by taking the knee.
