Woolwich Town Hall goes purple for Black Lives Matter & George Floyd

Woolwich Town Hall was lit up in purple light last night to remember George Floyd.

The council leader tweeted:

The same was seen at Lewisham Town Hall.

Many other authorities from Croydon in the south, to Ealing in the west and Newham in the east of London did the same.

A number of protests into his murder have taken place in London over recent days.

Note: I’ve turned off comments. It takes a lot of time to monitor comments as it is with some abusive ones slipping through the net or some valid comments going into spam automatically which have to be retrieved. I can see why many turn them off, but there are also useful comments too on many stories so I’d rather the option remained rather than a blanket halt but for this one I don’t have time today to monitor everything.
