Councillor Katherine Dunne, Cabinet Member for Communities and Climate Emergency at Hounslow Council, said:
“We are deeply saddened and angered by the death of George Floyd and our thoughts and prayers go out to his family.
For this reason we will be lighting up Hounslow House in purple this evening (Tuesday 2 June) to stand in solidarity with black people in the US, the UK and around the world.
It is incumbent on all of us to stand up to discrimination, violence, racism and injustice and to declare that Black Lives Matter.”
