The young people of Lytham are organising a march at 1pm on Sunday 7th June 2020 at the Windmill.
Yasmine Ballout, 18, organised the protest after speaking to her friends who all feel very strongly about the movement, especially after the recent events in America. She said “This event is in solidarity with the black lives matter movement and the injustices faced by Black people across the world today.I know many people are concerned about the risk of joining a protest in the midst of a pandemic so we want to ask everyone to bring a mask and stay 2m from each other and the public. Some people are saying we should wait until the pandemic is over to protest, but I disagree. Our privilege enables us to sit and wait for a more convenient time to protest, but we must act now before any more lives are lost. SILENCE = VIOLENCE
