[Global Times Comprehensive Report] The anti-racism movement “African Lives and Lives” was nominated for the 2021 Nobel Peace Prize.
According to Business Insider on January 30, the nominee Peter Eide, a Norwegian congressman, wrote in his nomination letter that the “Black Lives Matters” campaign has become “a very important global campaign against racial inequality”.
The official Twitter account of “African people also said on the same day: “We are carrying out the largest social movement in global history.
Today, we are nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize. People are beginning to realize our global call for racial justice and an end to injustice, racism and white supremacy.
This is just the beginning!”
On May 25 last year, police in Minneapolis, Minnesota, continued to press the neck of an African-American man Freud while arresting him, causing Freud to suffocate.
This incident has triggered a wave of protests in the United States and other countries.
Many netizens are very happy that the “African Life is also Life” movement has been nominated. Some netizens said: “If the ‘African Life is also Life’ campaign wins, every African man should get a certificate.”
Some netizens also believe that “it is good news to be nominated, but the movement has a long way to go.” However, some netizens sarcastically said, “You won’t win the Nobel Peace Prize without any disturbance these days!” It is also mentioned that I don’t know how former U.S. President Trump feels when he learned that the Nobel Peace Prize he is thinking about may be awarded “African people’s life is also life”.
Trump has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize for two consecutive years, this year on the grounds that Trump played a key role in the recent peace agreement between Israel and the United Arab Emirates.
It is reported that the deadline for submitting candidates for the Nobel Peace Prize this year is February 1.
The winners will be selected in October, and the award ceremony is scheduled for December 10.
Last year, the Nobel Peace Prize was nominated for more than 300, which was finally won by the United Nations World Food Programme for “an outstanding contribution to the eradication of hunger and the improvement of peace conditions in conflict areas”.
