After official Black Lives Matter protests were cancelled in London on the 11th of June 2020 after a number of far-right hate groups threatened to harm anyone in support of #BlackLivesMatter. The streets of London had few #BLM supporters in sight whilst far-right groups took to the streets to cause havoc; attacking police and anyone in their way.
The right-wing extremists were chanting for the the current British Prime Minister 'Boris [Johnson]' and English Defence League founder 'Tommy Robinson' that has since been affiliated with the far-right political party #UKIP.
Meanwhile in the #Liverpool City Region peaceful protests against hate for Black Lives Matter where taking place outside St. George's Hall in Liverpool City Centre. This stark difference between the North, in Liverpool, and the South in London, made Scousers feel even greater detachment from England, particularly London, as the North/South Divide can be heavily felt in the Liverpudlian Region. In addition to the fact that the Liverpool City Region voted to #Remain in the #EUReferendum, and the #Conservatives continual attacks on the city; from Thatcher's 'managed decline' and Andrea Leadsom's 'managed exit' of the EU, to Boris' repulsive comments about Liverpool and the Hillsborough Disaster in which he said that Liverpool "see themselves whenever possible as victims, and resent their victim status; yet at the same time they wallow in it."
#Scousers felt proud that yet again Liverpool was showing peace, acceptance and progressive attitudes whilst far-right extremists where out on the streets of London empowered by Conservative Prime Minister #BorisJohnson.
Videos shared online show far-right white supremacists invade the Capital and attack police for no reason other than to cause harm and chaos.
Scousers flooded social media platforms with their pride to be from the City Region in which such diversity and culture is openly celebrated.
