About Us

OUR HISTORY

The BSE for Black Lives was born from the Bury St Edmunds Black Lives Protest that took place on the 7th June 2020. The protest was a show of solidarity for local black Lives in light of the Brutal Murder of George Floyd and many others and to highlight the oppression and inequality that black people have endured for centuries.
The protest was largely organised by members of Extinction Rebellion BSE and in consultation with black members of the community. Despite the protest being organised within a short period of time the event was widely praised by people from all backgrounds. Members of the community spoke and were able to have their voice heard and validated. It was a safe space for everyone to get together and support the cause.
OUR MISSION
We, the organisers of BSE for Black Lives want to recognise our responsibility and actively stand up for anti-racism in the UK by using the channels we have. To create a platform and the opportunity for black voices to be heard. To continue to advocate for Black Lives and also to seek to build understanding and solidarity within the community.
