Mayor Ed Holder’s Statement on Peaceful Black Lives Matter Protest

打印打印告诉朋友告诉朋友

I would like to commend organizers, and all those who took part, for conducting a deeply moving and historic protest Saturday in downtown London. I must also thank the London Police Service and City of London staff for their positive and proactive approach. In addition, it must be said, the young Black women who spearheaded today’s protest deserve our collective respect. These five, strong women are not only ‘future leaders,’ they’ve proven themselves as present day leaders. Our community is stronger, and will undoubtedly be made more just, as a result of their continued involvement.

At its peak, Saturday’s crowd was estimated by LPS at approximately 10,000 women, men, and children. Many participants made efforts to maintain physical distancing, and there was also widespread use of PPE and hand sanitizer. Even still, my paramount concern remains the health and safety of Londoners. As per recommendations from our Medical Officer of Health, those who attended should self-monitor for a period of 14 days. Anyone who wants a COVID-19 test, especially at the slightest hint of symptoms, should visit one of London’s two assessment centres at the earliest possible opportunity. We need to ensure everyone who attended Saturday’s protest is healthy, and able to contribute to the important work involved in dismantling systemic racism.

This was a peaceful protest aimed at ending a centuries-old public health issue, anti-Black racism, held during the midst of a global pandemic. The need for such a protest should be brutally and painfully obvious. I hope and pray questions regarding the ‘timing’ are ultimately proven irrelevant. What truly matters now, and what matters even more going forward, is action.

My hope is all Londoners remember the passion, the hurt, and the urgency we heard from those who spoke on Saturday. I commit to working with them, along with members of London’s Black, Indigenous, and People of Colour communities, public officials and leaders of institutions to build a London that reflects - on all days - the sense of fairness, justice, and unity we witnessed on this day.

广而告之
