Thank you @belzebub and @chorister.
Yes, this was a Wandsworth Stand Up to Racism protest regarding the Windrush Scandal and indeed the story was in London News Online. We are not journalists here at NappyValleyNet, we scour the news every morning, aggregate it and bring you the top stories happening in our community in one place for your convenience. As far as we can, we always ensure they are from credible sources.
If you look through our site in 'Local News', you will see that we covered BLM protests in Nappy Valley / South West London.
I personally attended the BLM protest in Tooting Common on the 14th June and posted a short piece on our social media and site to reassure those who were considering attending that there was no violence from far right wing groups as seen in Central London at the time and that people were socially distancing. I explained in this piece that over 1000 people attended. I also notified people on this site and in our instagram account when peaceful protests were coming up.
I really am sorry that you found this piece offensive, I can see that you care passionately about the movement, but I can assure you that we do too. We have been very supportive both in our coverage on the forum and across our social media and in our sentiment and beliefs, and we as a team are deeply hurt by accusations of racism and bias.
Can I direct you towards some below pieces that we ran on this site and on our social media that may go some way to changing your feelings.
