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.”

Cuba has blasted the continuing US economic blockade warning of a “violation of human rights” after a shipment of vital medical aid from China was stopped from reaching the country on Tuesday.
Washington was accused of acting with “Wild West brutality,” using the Covid-19 outbreak as an opportunity to “strangle the Cuban Revolution.”
“Cuba denounces the fact that medical supplies from Alibaba Foundation to help combat Covid-19 have not arrived in the country due to the criminal US blockade against the island nation,” President Miguel Canel-Diaz blasted.
