“I have stood, and I will continue to stand, in full solidarity with the Black Lives Matter protests and I will always support activists in Leicester, in the UK and across the world who are safely and peacefully opposing systems of racist oppression.

“Priti Patel’s appalling condemnation of the inspiring Black Lives Matter protests are the latest escalation of this government’s attempt to divide us up.
