"The more they ignore us the more noise we make, we will no longer be bullied or mistreated.

"Police officers need to be held accountable for the force they use - and we the people will not stop until we see changes.

"Following the huge turnout of the BLM Protests, we want to let the powers that be know that we will not tolerate injustices here or anywhere."

The protest will take place on May 29.

There are also several speakers at the event, although they are yet to have been decided on.

UK rapper Amari Jamz said: "Great purpose is only identified in the troubled.

"As a minority we are the troubled ones.

"The ones that are blind will now see & the ones that were deaf will now hear.

"Stop ignoring our cry and value our black lives.

"Change is happening!"

Protesters are asked to meet by the Astroturf on Meadowcroft, Aylesbury HP199HH at 1pm, for a 2pm start.

Protesters are reminded this is a peaceful protest and aggressive behaviour will not be tolerated.

Children are welcome with an adult and protesters are reminded to bring water and a facemask.
