Activist Imarn Ayton organizes demonstrations with thousands of protesters. So why hasn't UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson rung her up? Her hope is to see the anti-racism protests result in effective policy-making.
Boris Johnson has already responded. He has convened an anti-racism commission to take a closer look at social inequities. But actor and activist Imarn Ayton claims it is only meant to placate the protesters. She points out that quite a few commissions have already spelled out ways to secure the rights of non-white Britons, but their proposals have yet to be put into practice — and it is time for Britain finally to take an honest hard look at its own colonial past. DW's Birgit Maass accompanied Ayton through a week of protests.
