On Sunday, hundreds of pro-Yemeni and Dark Lives Matter protesters joined forces in London to demonstrate against”white” capitalism, systemic racism, and also the war in Yemen.
In a Breitbart London exclusive video, protesters are seen shouting the Islamic phrase”Allah hu Akbar” (Allah is higher [than your god]),”Justice for Yemen”, in addition to common slogans to the BLM movement in Britain for example”the UK is not innocent”.
A white man activist — who said he will never truly know the plight of minorities since he does not”reside in a black figure” — pointed into the capitalist system as the reason behind the world’s ills.
“Quarterly return is your god who capitalism always worships at. The realities are, as Extinction Rebellion well put it, the profit motive means you could never possess infinite growth on a finite planet,” he said.
The left-wing speaker went on to warn of the effects of unemployment during the financial crisis spurred by the Chinese coronavirus. He said:”The realities are that within the next six months we might well have 50 percent unemployment in the United Kingdom and when that happens, you are going to see enormous, enormous social change.”
Another activist took aim in the American Declaration of Independence, stating it was a commodity of”white Hispanic slave owners” and was used to oppress black people.
“We trust in a theory that was built off our backs and constructed to enslave. Once we have famine in Yemen and occupation in Palestine, democracy today doesn’t exist, once we have black people dying on the roads\. Democracy does not exist because, in the united kingdom, capitalist interests mean more than the interests of the general public,” she said.
Echoing similar rhetoric in past Black Lives Issue protests in London, a young, self-described”mixed-race” girl said that white people having children with a black man doesn’t mean they aren’t racist.
“By the way, to those who wants or has a mixed-race child, I hope you realise that does not necessarily make you anti-racist. In fact, you’re doing the opposite,” she said.
“You are, firstly, objectifying and fetishising someone like me personally and what you’re fetishising is a whitewashed blackness… you’re saying that’s okay or that’s trendy, well I am not your fucking fashion,” she added.
The far-left rhetoric observed at Black Lives Matter protests and from the direction of BLM UK has led to one notable activist distancing herself from the group, saying that the movement was”hijacked” by a group of Marxists.
“The issue with BLM UK is they have not revealed themselves, they have never been transparent. They’re abolitionists, they consider in the elimination of prisons, smashing capitalism and abolishing the authorities,’ actress and activist Imarn Ayton told that the Mail on Sunday.
“I am just mortified because everyone has given money and they aren’t likely to use that to better the black community. They are going to use it in order to abolish law enforcement, eliminate prisons and get rid of capitalism,” Ayton added.
