Hull City Council Liberal Democrats have always supported the 'Black Lives Matter' movement and the city has a great heritage of supporting equality and diversity with figures that have led against racism such as the likes of William Wilberforce.
The Liberal Democrats exist to fight for justice, liberty and equality. It is unacceptable what has happened to George Floyd in the USA - check out the full story here.
Lib Dem Councillor Holly Burton of Pickering Ward attended the Black Lives Matter demonstration in Hull City Centre, whilst maintaining a social distance, and stated:
"I recommend that everyone who cares about equality and diversity attends future demos, the speakers are incredibly powerful and have eye-opening real stories of suffering from racism."
"Together the more we learn about it, the more we find ourselves in a stronger position to do something to make things fairer and better and relate to one another."
