"When will we act?" David Lammy has his say on the Black Lives Matter movement | LBC
David Lammy addressed the anti-racism movement and wondered how we can sustain the energy of the cause seen during lockdown. David Lammy began by pointing at the scale of events seen in America early in lockdown which "ricocheted across the world," and led to "a very real debate, conversation in this country" over race relations, where we would usually brush off the social struggles in America. David welcomed the activists that were addressing institutional racism in the UK during lockdown and saw it important to shine a light on the issue here. "What matters to me is how do we sustain the energy of the black lives movement, how do we keep the conversation going and more importantly, how do we this time get some action, how do we really get the change." David told listeners that he was fed up with having to hide behind enquiries and reports investigating racism in the UK and told listeners "we've got so many enquiries...when will we act?" #DavidLammy #BlackLivesMatter #LBC LBC is the home of live debate around news and current affairs.
