SEVERAL hundred people, mainly of the younger generation, turned out across the islands on Saturday to show their solidarity and support for the Black Lives Matter movement.

In a protest that was following social distancing rules people were asked to show their support by taking a Shetland Staands wi Black Lives Matter poster on their daily walk in their community.

People are asked to upload photos of posters online and tag Shetland Staands Wi Black Lives Matter on Facebook, @shetlandstaands on Instagram or @SStands on Twitter.
