Black Lives Matter Art Show Went To London

And in the midst of reading the headline news of the day, I made it to London! The United Kingdom. And I got photos, lots and lots, well a few, photos of that Black Lives Matter Art Show that went to London this past weekend, or at least part of it, or some version of it, or as much of it that could fit in a carry on bag on an airplane.  And in all blogger honesty, I wanted to take one of those summer vacations somewhere on planet earth to sight see and London came to mind, and I thought why not attempt to make one of those Black Lives Matter Art Shows that have been in that New York City area while I am there in London also. And thank you Common House for accepting my booking inquiry to host this event at your space. The Common House is a collectively managed space for radical groups, projects and community events. And thank you Time Out London for listing this event as Things to Do to help get people to that art show at Common House. And the Facebook event invite that I created for this event read something like:

And besides that "All Lives Matter" comment that is written everywhere on those banners, there were a few more "Your Thoughts on Black Lives Matter" thoughts that were written on those banners that were:

1. Peace
2. Words are very necessary! @ London 8/2019
3. Because it should not even be a question. #solidarity #humanright
4. Only by working together then will equality win. 3/8/19 - London
5. Love & compassion will win. Stay woke, be active and don't back down. #blacklivesmatter 3.8.19

And what else is there that I can say about Occupy Wall Street, Occupy Art or Black Lives Matter that has not already been said in Occupy Wall Street, Occupy Art or Black Lives Matter time except Black Lives Matter, Occupy Art, Occupy Wall Street Worldwide.
