The Black Lives Matter protests were so powerful in the United States that they even inspired demonstrations in Spain, which I was happy to see. I attended the Malaga protest on a sunny Sunday morning at the Plaza De La Marina with an estimated crowd size of six hundred people. Only a small police presence of less than five officers was visible and they stayed a respectful distance away.

To quote one of the signs below: “I will never understand, but I see you, I hear you, and I stand with you.”
