The Black Lives Matter movement has officially crossed the Atlantic.

On Friday morning, 15 Black Lives Matter UK protesters were arrested for blocking traffic to both Heathrow and Birmingham airports.


According to the Telegraph, the protest was held in honor of the five year anniversary of Mark Dugan’s death and just days after the group called for a “nationwide shutdown” of roads across the UK.


Dugan was killed while Metropolitan police carried out “Operation Trident,” a sting program targeting the sale of firearms, illegal in the UK.

Breitbart reports he was shot “15 minutes after taking possession of an illegal handgun.”

The group also pointed to the death of 24-year-old Leon Patterson.
