Harry Styles takes part in peaceful march in LA over the killing of George Floyd

Harry Styles took part in a peaceful protest in Los Angeles earlier this week as he called for justice over the killing of unarmed black man, George Floyd, in Minneapolis on May 25. 

On Friday, police officer Derek Chauvin was charged with third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter after a video surfaced of him crushing George's neck with his knee, which has since sparked demonstrations across the globe.

In a series of Instagram photos shared on fan accounts on Tuesday, the musician, 26, can be seen holding up a Black Lives Matter placard and kneeling to the ground with fellow protesters as a powerful symbol against racism.

The former One Direction star - who has been vocal about steering the fight against police brutality - made an important statement by marching along the streets of the Californian city.

Harry kindly took photos with fans during the outing, with a selection showing the artist raising his fist in the air and kneeling - signs which promote unity and solidarity for oppressed individuals. 

American footballer Colin Kaepernick's national anthem kneeling protest staged in 2016 has since become synonymous with the BLM movement.  

Social media users who documented the singer's appearance penned on their pages: 'My brother @harrystyles showed the f**k up!

On Sunday, Harry revealed he's donating post bail funds to arrested protest organisers.

Taking to Twitter, the songwriter used his platform to promote the Black Lives Matter movement and urged his fans to 'educate' themselves on police brutality and racism.

Highlighting his privilege as a white male, the former One Direction singer wrote: 'I do things every day without fear, because I am privileged, and I am privileged every day because I am white.

'Being not racist is not enough, we must be anti racist. Social change is enacted when a society mobilizes.'

Throwing his support behind the international activist movement, the British artist added: 'I stand in solidarity with all of those protesting.

'I’m donating to help post bail for arrested organizers. Look inwards, educate yourself and others.

Model Chrissy Teigen has also pledged to help those in need of bail money for the cause.

'In celebration of whatever the f*** maga night is, I am committed to donating $100,000 to the bail outs of protestors across the country,' the media personality, 34, initially tweeted. 

Moments later, the mother-of-two defiantly wrote: 'Ooo they might need more money then. Make it $200,000,' following backlash she received for supporting the demonstrations. 

Dozens of US cities have been set ablaze over the last week amid deadly clashes with police officers over the killing of George, whose death is considered a symbol of systemic police brutality against African-Americans.

Thousands had earlier gathered at Trafalgar Square before making their way to the gates of Downing Street and then south of the river towards the US Embassy.

Meanwhile outside Cardiff Castle in Wales, protesters were seen holding placards saying, 'The UK isn't innocent,' and in Manchester hundreds were chanting in St. Peter's Square.

They have defied the ban on mass gatherings due to coronavirus to show their solidarity with US citizens.
