Black Lives Matter: Arsenal coach and his players show support to the movement (photos).

Arsenal's head coach, Mikel Arteta and his players are showing support to the 'Black Lives Matter' movement currently sweeping across the world.

Some of the players who shared their support include Eddie Nketiah, Mustafi, Hector Bellerin.
On the black polo worn by some of the players reads: I can't breathe, we stand for change, we stand in solidarity. But that of Hector Bellerin really caught a serious attention. On his own polo has the inscription: "I'm not black, but I stand with you."
The photos were shared on the official Instagram page of the club with the caption: "we stand in solidarity".
Recall, the 'Black lives Matter' movement or protest was triggered by the brutal murder of an African-American named George Flyod by a Minneapolis police officer. Since then, the protest has gone viral like a wild fire, with several celebrities showing solidarity.
Sadly, the entire thing is coming at a time the world is facing another serious issue, arising from the COVID-19 pandemic. And the protest neglected the lockdown order aimed at curtailing the spread of the virus, as millions took to the street to register their grievances.
