Ian Mckendrick from Oxford Stand Up To Racism, said : "The Black Lives Matter movement showed the power of a mass movement against racism. It opened up a debate about racism and won some real changes, but racism is still not defeated.”

The rally will also hear speakers from Oxford Against Immigration Detention and Oxford Medact, alongside a representative of a UK trade union.
