Hundreds of protesters gathered in Brixton and on Oxford Street this weekend to support the Black Lives Matter movement, after two African-American men were shot by police in separate America last week. Philando Castile and Alton Sterling are the latest victims in a line of similar incidents of police shootings in the US. Activists came together on Saturday in Windrush Square, before marching towards Brixton police station. There was another demonstration on Oxford Street on Sunday, when parts of the street where shut down by the protest.
