When valid protests are hijacked

If you’d prefer to read this episode, you can find a full transcript here.

Black Lives Matter united people all over the world in protest against the police murder of an unarmed man. Now, three weeks after that event, the protests have become a divisive issue and seem to be taking on a life of their own.

The protests are also a distraction from the issue which has removed civil rights and liberties from all of us in the UK and many people in other countries.

Black lives matter is a valid and important statement, but it is no contradiction of this to say that all lives matter, especially at a time like the present.
