Man surrounded by BLM protesters after allegedly antagonising them

Story and video from SWNS

This is the moment hundreds of protesters at a UK Black Lives Matter rally surrounded and shouted down a man allegedly antagonising marchers.

Protesters said he was claiming there was no point in the movement because he'd been in jail and seen white and black boys getting along.

But it sparked outrage from the crowds in Portsmouth, and they soon surrounded the man and began shouting.

A video shows them yelling, "Black lives matter", while he appears to continue to argue back.

One protester said: "He came here earlier and was being confrontational saying how he thought the protest was pointless."

"He was trying to compare homelessness with racism, suggesting that it is never going to change".

The clip was filmed at one of the many protests taking place across the UK recently in the wake of the death of George Floyd.

In one video, the man can be heard claiming: "I've been in jail right and I see white boys and I see black boys getting on fine with each other".

He added: "I've been homeless. I've been struggling."

One of the protesters can be heard to reply: "Are you dead though? Are you?"

After attracting a large amount of unwanted attention the man moved on.
