“Star Wars” actor John Boyega rallied crowds at a large London protest against George Floyd’s death on Wednesday, telling demonstrators that “now is the time” to demand racial equality.
The star made an emotional speech into a megaphone as thousands poured through Hyde Park, marching in solidarity with protesters in the US.
“Black lives have always mattered,” Boyega said at the rally. “We have always been important to the US. We have always meant something for them. We have always succeeded regardless. And now is the time. I ain’t waiting. I ain’t waiting.”
