Prominent Black Lives Matter activist Sasha Johnson is critically ill after being shot in the head, her party says.
The Taking the Initiative Party (TTIP) said she was being treated in intensive care after being “brutally attacked” in the early hours of Sunday.
The 27-year-old has life-threatening injuries following the shooting on Consort Road, in Peckham, south London.
TTIP said Ms. Johnson had undergone an operation and remained in critical care, in recovery post-surgery.
A vigil was held in Ruskin Park, close to King’s College Hospital, where Ms. Johnson is being treated.
Well-wishers played African drums and prayed for Ms. Johnson to pull through.
One speaker told the crowd: “In every community, there are good eggs and bad eggs and we have to make sure those bad eggs are held accountable for their actions.
“Because it’s not acceptable for those bad eggs to be attacking our warriors – be they male or female.
“Warriors who are out there every day without pay working for our families, working for our communities.”
The mainstream media and BLM supporters were quick to label this attack as white supremacy!
However, this morning huge news came out!
A prominent Black Lives Matter activist was shot by a group of four black men at a party in south London, police say.
Sasha Johnson is critically ill in hospital after being shot in the head at a property in Peckham on Sunday.
Met Commander Alison Heydari said the men had “entered the garden of the property and discharged a firearm”.
Ms. Johnson’s party said she had previously received death threats but police have said there was “nothing to suggest” it was “a targeted attack”.
Cdr Heydari added detectives were also “not aware of any reports of threats made against her prior to this incident”.
Most of the mainstream media who yesterday tried to frame this attack as white supremacy either didn’t report the fact that four black men attacked the BLM leader or leave that news out of the headline. Read more
