In the news....
You can't fail to have seen on the news the protest rallies and marches which were organised across the world this weekend (including in Ipswich). They are being organised as part of worldwide issue to highlight racism across the world and to bring it to the attention of the media and politicians. The protests are in reaction to the treatment of a man called George Floyd by police in America and the movement is called 'Black lives Matter'.
