The Black Lives Matter movement has been nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize. The nomination was put forth by Norwegian MP Petter Eide. BLM riots in the US led to the deaths of at least 25 people.
Eide’s rationale for the nomination was that the BLM movement in America led other nations to see their own racism, according to The Guardian.
Portland, which was one of the locations subject to violence, saw more than 100 nights of rioting in a row.
BLM is led by three radical activists, Patrisse Cullors, Alicia Garza, and Opal Tometi. Cullors claimed that there was a double standard in effect for the Capitol Hill riot versus the BLM riots that rocked the nation following the death of George Floyd in May in Minneapolis. Over 100 people have been arrested in connection with the one-day riot in Washington, DC on Jan. 6, and are many are facing federal charges.
While there were plenty of arrests made in the BLM riots that lasted throughout the summer, advocates were successfully able to convince prosecutors both to release the rioters from custody and in many cases to dismiss charges.
