The march was organised by the South London branch of the Stand Up to Racism campaign.

The crowd gathered in Burgess Park for what was billed as a 'peaceful and socially distanced protest'.

The march then made its way up the Walworth Road for a final rally in St Mary's Churchyard at the Elephant & Castle.

Participants included two Southwark Lib Dem councillors: London Bridge & West Bermondsey ward's William Houngbo and Graham Neale of St George's ward.
