The Mix's media crew recently went to a Black Lives Matter protest, over at Westminster. They captured some of the proesting and spoke to some of the young protestors to hear what they had to say.

Here's what happened. :) 


Have you been to any protests? If so, what was your experience?
All behaviour is a need trying to be met.

    The protest in my city had to be relocated last minute because EDL showed up. The turn out was good, there were speech's from multiple people who gave an insight in some of the equalities they have faced, so was a real eye opener. 
    It was also nice to see different generations involved. I noticed many young people but also the older generation including elderly at the protest. 
    It was a protest that needed to happen and I do hope change is coming from jt

    The scars you can't see are the hardest to heal.

    That is a great video so well done media team. I hope that there was adequate social distancing to keep everyone safe. 

    I have never been to a protest although I was close to going to one at one point last year. Me and some other students were going to make a petition for the older students (year 9 and above) to be allowed the day off to go to a protest. I think that it was a climate change protest. But we ended up not doing it because of it being unlikely that we would get permission and it would be a bad idea for basically half the school to walk out.
    Everyone is special in their own way. We make each other strong (we make each other strong.) We're not the same. We're different in a good way. Together's where we belong. We're all in this together. Once we know. That we are. We're all stars. And we see that. We're all in this together. And it shows. When we stand. Hand in hand. Make our dreams come true.
