Many people gave heartfelt speeches to the crowds of demonstrators that had gathered on the beach

Last evening protestors took to Aberystwyth’s south beach in a show of solidarity following the death of George Floyd, an American man who was killed after an officer pinned him to the ground by the neck with his knee.

The demonstrators were taking part in one of dozens of Black Lives Matter demonstrations that are taking place across the country.

So many people turned up to the beach that organizers had to essentially do each speech twice so everyone could hear.

There were an estimated 200 people at the protest, with people sitting on the beach, standing along the promenade, and even sitting up on the castle walls.

Many demonstrators brought handmade placards with slogans like “Respect existence or expect resistance” and “We said black lives matter – we didn’t say only black lives matter”.

Chants of “no justice, no peace” could be heard, as well as people chanting “black lives matter”.

Four or five different organisers gave speeches in which they said they were overwhelmed and incredibly thankful for the turnout.
