Solidarity in Eynsham

Local Extinction Rebellion members supported the Black Lives Matter movement after the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis, Minnesota.  On a beautiful Sunday morning on 7 June 2020, socially distanced protesters – some accompanied by their children – gently shared their messages as local people queued for or drank their morning coffee in Eynsham Square. Thumbs up and nods from passers by created moments of silent solidarity with black people everywhere. [See three photos of the event in the Gallery]
