Star Wars actor John Boyega is one of the many people taking action in wake of George Floyd's death.

Thousands of people in the UK gathered to protest in solidarity with the U.S. over the weekend, and on Wednesday, the British actor was seen delivering an emotional address in the middle of a Black Lives Matter protest at London's Hyde Park.

Last week Boyega addressed the death of George Floyd on his Twitter account, and has since fired off several other tweets condemning racism and criticizing those who took issue with him speaking out.

The actor also spoke to followers in an Instagram Live video, during which he said, "Although I don’t live in the States, I’m black…So I'll say it again: Fuck you racist white people.

Boyega and other protesters in London defied coronavirus restrictions to attend these rallies.
