Black Lives Matter activist Sasha Johnson is in a critical condition after sustaining a gunshot wound to her head, Taking the Initiative Party (TTIP) has said.
In a statement published on Instagram, TTIP said: ‘It is with great sadness that we inform you that our own Sasha Johnson has been brutally attacked and sustained a gunshot wound to her head.
‘She is currently in intensive care and in a critical condition. The attack happened in the early hours of this morning, following numerous death threats as a result of her activism.

‘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 2 and a strong, powerful voice for our people and our community.
‘Let’s all come together and pray for Sasha, pray for her recovery and show our support to her family and loved ones. #prayforsashajohnson’.
Ms Johnson played a leading role in last summer’s BLM protests, including the Million People March, and is now an executive committee member of the BLM-inspired TTIP.
She is also a UK representative of the Black Panthers Party – modelled on a far-Left sub-set of protesters who campaigned against police brutality in 1960s America.
Ms Johnson, an Oxford Brookes graduate, has campaigned for statues to be removed and is part of the secretive group Forever Family Force.
Footage on Instagram shows her parading with female FFF members in military-style garb during a march in Brixton earlier this year for African Emancipation Day.
Ms Johnson, a youth worker and cafe owner, has called for the establishment of a ‘black militia’ in the UK. In a video posted in July, she compared the police to the Ku Klux Klan and dismissed ethnic minority politicians David Lammy, Priti Patel and Sadiq Khan as ‘tokenistic’.
The mother of two also recently led chants of ‘f*** the police’ and ‘one solution, revolution’ in a fresh campaign to remove the statue of Cecil Rhodes from Oxford University.
