Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer wrote to PM Boris Johnson yesterday, calling on the government to urge US President Donald Trump to “respect human rights.”

In the letter, Starmer said that the killing of George Floyd and the subsequent response of the US authorities to peaceful protests has “shone a spotlight on the racism, discrimination and injustice experienced by those from black and minority ethnic communities in the US and across the world.”

As well as his call on the government to raise the issue with the US, Starmer also asked what steps the government was taking to reassure black communities in Britain.

He wrote: “The death of George Floyd has justifiably prompted anger and a burning desire for fundamental change.

“[Britain] must be clear in showing that we understand this frustration and that we are ready to stand together with those who seek to tackle the injustice and inequality that remains within all our societies.”
