Dozens of 'Black Lives Matter' activists lay down in the middle of the road leading to London's Heathrow Airport on Friday, blocking all traffic entering the airport. Several arrests were made during the rally. The event is a part of the 'BlackAugust' national day of protests aimed to raise awareness of racism and police brutality, five years after the police killing of Mark Duggan sparked a wave of protests across the UK.
