Black Lives Matter organisers have taken to using white people marching with them as human shields to separate themselves from police.
Video out of Rochester, New York, shows organisers demanding that white people form a front line between black protesters and the police.
“If you’re white and you got a shield, you need to be making a perimeter from whatever this street is to whatever that street is. If you are black, stay in the middle,” an organiser with a megaphone is heard ordering in the footage.
“White shields! White shields make a circle!” another person demands.
