Sasha Johnson Career

Johnson campaigned for the Oxford Rhodes Must Fall campaign. She participated in the Black Lives Matter protests of 2020. In response to a far-right counter-protest with the stated intention of protecting war memorials, Johnson told the The Guardian: “We’re painted as thugs when the real thugs are disguised as protecting those memorials. And when they’re drunk, they piss on those memorials.” In August 2020, Johnson was an organiser for the Million People March, an anti-racist demonstration in London attended by around 400 people. In March 2021, Johnson was co-signatory to a statement alleging that police were targeting some Black protesters who participated in the 2020 Black Lives Matter protests by name, including by repeated phone calls, to deter them from engaging in Kill the Bill protests.

In summer 2020, Johnson was involved in the founding of the Taking The Initiative Party (TTIP); she serves on its Executive Leadership Committee. Sky News reported that the party was registered with the Electoral Commission around 2017. The party supports the decentralised Black Lives Matter movement but is unaffiliated with the specific organisation Black Lives Matter. Though the party considered running for the 2021 London mayoral election (originally scheduled for 2020) under the name “Black Lives Matter for the GLA”, its first candidates for office stood in the May 2021 local elections.
