In Britain we have our George Floyds too

Author: Rebecca Omontra-Otekanmi

In: New Statesman, 2020

The author begins by recalling the death of 20 year-old Rashan Charles in a London shop in July 2017 whilst he was being violently restrained by two police officers, who were cleared of misconduct. She argues that though the scale of police violence may be smaller in the UK, it is not very different. The cause is structural racism.
