There were 10,000 people who supported the protest on Black Lives Matter as they walked the streets in Bristol, England, where Banksy was born. They took down Edward Colston’s statue, which the police considered as a criminally damaging act.

Mr. George Floyd is the black person who died last May 25 when a police officer held him down by his knee on his neck. This incident happened in Minneapolis and has since then started the protests that have been ravaging different parts of the world.
