Black Lives Matter campaigners returned to Pond Square this weekend, with the local activist group continuing to push for action to tackle systemic racism.
At a protest on July 25, speakers from Haringey Stand Up To Racism (SUTR) and the Freed Resilience group discussed unconscious bias and stop and search with attendees.
The Highgate Black Lives Matter group first convened in early June. After a number of weekly events, organisers decided to invite speakers and “keep the conversation going”.
