One of Britain's most well known Black Lives Matter activists, Sasha Johnson, is in "critical condition" after being shot in the head early Sunday morning.
The self-proclaimed "Black Panther of Oxford" sustained the gunshot wound to the head near what was believed to be a house party in the Southwark area of London.
Taking The Initiative Party (TTIP) said : “It is with great sadness that we inform you that our own Sasha Johnson has sustained a gunshot wound to her head. She is currently hospitalised and in a critical condition. The incident happened in the early hours of this morning, following numerous death threats."
“Sasha has always been actively fighting for black people and the injustices that surround the black community, as well as being both a member of BLM and a member of Taking the Initiative Party’s Executive Leadership Committee. Sasha is also a mother of 3 and a strong, powerful voice for our people and our community," they continued.
TTIP added, “Let’s all come together and pray for Sasha, pray for her recovery and show our support to her family and loved ones.”
Sasha Johnson gained national attention following the publication of a viral video which showed her declaring that British police are “no different than the KKK” and that the formation of a “Black Militia” was necessary to combat racism in Britain. She has also called for the creation of a “race offenders’ register” which could impact the jobs people can hold and the areas where they can live, and called for the “hanging” of what she called “house negroes” after a British government report led by a black academic found that the United Kingdom is not an “institutionally racist” country.
While not affiliated with the Twitter-verified Black Lives Matter UK organisation, Johnson has frequently appeared at BLM rallies in London and helped establish an autonomous Black Lives Matter group in Oxford.
BLM UK responded to the shooting on social media with a statement: “We are saddened to hear that Sasha Johnson is fighting for her life after a critical wound and following numerous death threats. While Sasha wasn’t part of our organisation, she impressively founded a new Black-led political party and was dedicated to resist anti-Black racism.”
“Any attempt to intimidate or silence her, is an attack on all of us. Touch one, touch all. We pray that she will pull through this and those who threatened her life are held accountable,” they added.
Any attempt to intimidate or silence her, is an attack on all of us. Touch one, touch all.
We pray that she will pull through this and those who threatened her life are held accountable.
Our thoughts are with her children, family, and all impacted by this senseless attack.

At a so-called ‘Million People March’ in London in August of last year, Johnson announced the formation of the Taking The Initiative Party (TTIP), which she claimed at the time was the “the first black-led political party in the UK” — although she would later clarify that the party was merely “black founded”.
In March of this year, Sasha Johnson promoted the creation of the New Black Panther Party UK on her social media, but she remains involved with TTIP as well, and is still listed as a member of its executive leadership committee.
