Following the tragic murder of George Floyd, cities all over the world have hosted Black Lives Matter protests, with everyone from John Boyega to Meghan Markle showing their support.

Over the weekend, Game Of Thrones actress Sophie Turner shared photos from a demonstration in LA, where she and husband Joe Jonas marched along with thousands of others.

"No justice, no peace #BlackLivesMatter," Sophie wrote to her 15.4million followers, along with a photo her her holding a homemade "White silence is violence" poster and taking the knee.

A troll took to the comment section to question why the actress was protesting for justice, given that all four police officers involved in George Floyd's murder have been arrested (via CNN).

Sophie gave a spot-on response as to why the Black Lives Matter movement doesn't stop there, explaining that achieving real justice goes beyond a single case:

"This isn’t just about those four cops. This is about Breonna Taylor, this is about Trayvon Martin, this is about Eric Garner, this is about the systemic racism that black people have faced for hundreds and hundreds of years. This is about changing the system. Justice will be done when society reflects our beliefs that we are all equal. Until then there should be no peace."
