A peaceful protest has been organised in Bedford town centre to promote an anti-racism message and show solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement.
People are invited to gather outside Specsavers on Midland Road to show their peaceful support for anti-racism on 8 June (Monday) at 2pm.
Organisers have asked everyone to observe social distancing and emphasised the peaceful nature of the anti-police brutality, anti-racism and anti-segregation protest.
Posts being shared across social media say masks, gloves and other protective items against coronavirus must be worn.
People attending will then be asked to ‘take a knee’ and share a moment’s silence at 2:45pm.
The protests are in response to the murder of George Floyd who was killed in Minneapolis, USA by a former policeman on 25 May.
