John Boyega tells George Floyd protesters: I’m speaking to you from my heart

Star Wars actor John Boyega has made an emotional speech in London’s Hyde Park over the death of George Floyd.

The film star, 28, told demonstrators gathered for a Black Lives Matter protest he was “speaking to you from my heart”.

The London actor referenced two other black Americans who controversially died in the US, as well as the racist murder of Stephen Lawrence in London in 1993.

Boyega urged protesters to remain peaceful as they demonstrated over the death of Mr Floyd.
