Protesters in London scrawled the names of black people killed while in the custody of or by police onto a statue of President Abraham Lincoln in Parliament Square.
Video and images from the area show protesters climbing the statue to cheers from the crowd before vandalizing the statue with spray paint and covering the base of the statue with Black Lives Matter signs.
Thousands streamed into London for another day of demonstrations to remember George Floyd, a black man who died on May 25 while he was in the custody of the Minneapolis Police Department.
Earlier in the day, protesters climbed atop a statue of former British Prime Minister Winston Churchill and defaced it.
Lincoln oversaw the destruction of the Confederate States of America during the Civil War, and his Emancipation Proclamation address on Jan. 1, 1863, stated that “all persons held as slaves” held within rebellious states “shall be free.” Lincoln was assassinated by John Wilkes Booth, an actor who was angry about Lincoln’s promotion of an end to slavery.
