EndSARS UK, an organisation sharing information support on UK protests, have shared plans for UK protests this weekend.

Processions in Manchester, Bristol, London, Reading, Glasgow and more are planned across the next three days (23, 24 and 25 October).
A number of artists have voiced their support for the #EndSARS movement in Nigeria following video footage surfacing on social media, appearing to show the Nigerian army opening fire on peaceful, unarmed #EndSARS protestors at Lagos’ Lekki toll gate. The state governor said about 25 people have been wounded, and one protestor is dead. A 24-hour curfew has since been imposed.
In a now-deleted tweet, former Crack Magazine cover star Burna Boy said, “I am in London and I’m doing my best to make sure sanctions are imposed against Nigerian government officials. I need all citizens of all European countries, America, Asia, EVERYWHERE, to please do the same. THEY MUST ALL PAY!!” [sic]
Burna had previously launched a charitable organisation to support protesters.
