Watch: John Boyega Gives Amazing, Emotional Speech At London Anti-Racism Rally

The killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis has spawned days and days of protest, all over the world. Today, in Hyde Park in London, thousands of people gathered to demand an end to institutional racism.

One of the people who spoke was actor John Boyega, who's best known for his role in the new Star Wars films.

Boyega spoke through a megaphone and delivered an impassioned and emotional address to the crowd.

We are a physical representation of our support for George Floyd.

"We are a physical representation of our support for Sandra Bland. We are a physical representation of our support for Trayvon Martin.

"We are a physical representation of our support for Stephen Lawrence."

I'm speaking to you from my heart. Look, I don't know if I'm going to have a career after this, but f*** that.

Boyega had been actively calling out racists on his Twitter feed over the past week.

Former US president Barack Obama is set to address the people of America this evening at 10pm Irish time.
