The mayor of Bristol says those taking part in Black Lives Matter protests this weekend should think about the possible health consequences of large rallies and demonstrations.
Marvin Rees says he agrees with the aims of the campaign but says there were other ways to protest - and suggested people follow the lead of the American footballer Colin Kaepernick who in 2016 started the practice of dropping to one knee during the national anthem to protest against racism.
"Covid is with us. We don't have a vaccine. And it's not the demonstration I have a problem with, it's any form of demonstration that requires a mass gathering," he told the BBC.
"Because my fear is a second wave will lead to a disproportionate loss of black and brown lives and any consequence of a further lockdown we know is also disproportionately impacting black and brown people - the lost jobs, the lost wages, the lost businesses, which, again, will have a health consequence."
