Black Lives Matter Movement Nominated For 2021 Nobel Peace Prize

Fact checked
Black Lives Matter

The Black Lives Matter Movement has been nominated for the 2021 Nobel peace prize by Norwegian MP Petter Eide.

He claims the impact of BLM’s anti-racism rallies has been felt far beyond the United States .

“I find that one of the key challenges we have seen in America, but also in Europe and Asia, is the kind of increasing conflict based on inequality” Eide said, adding that “Black Lives Matter has become a very important worldwide movement to fight racial injustice.

The Guardian report: Eide, who has previously nominated human rights activists from Russia and China for the prize, said one other thing that impressed him about the Black Lives Matter movement was the way “they have been able to mobilise people from all groups of society, not just African-Americans, not just oppressed people, it has been a broad movement, in a way which has been different from their predecessors.”

The Black Lives Matter movement was founded in 2013 in response to the acquittal in the US of the man who shot Trayvon Martin. It gained wider recognition in 2014 following protests over the deaths of Michael Brown and Eric Garner, and was the wellspring of a series of global protests in 2020 following the deaths of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor.

Nominations for the Nobel peace prize are accepted from any politician serving at a national level, and they are allowed just 2,000 words to state their case. The deadline for this year’s submission is 1 February, and by the end of March the committee prepares a shortlist. The winner is chosen in October and the award ceremony is scheduled for 10 December. There were more than 300 nominations for last year’s award, which was ultimately won by the World Food Programme.


  1. kind of confirms the legitimacy of the Nobel organization. they gave one to that dumass princeton economist also. can’t remember the name. the one that says all economic solutions are to print more money have have more government jobs. that is all he says, and he is some how amazing.

  2. Too much. BLM receiving the Nobel Peace Prize. That would fit the new name for the Award.

    Think about the 1939 Nobel Peace Prize.

    The Munich Agreement with Neville Chamberlain and Adolf Hitler occurred on September 30, 1938.

    Early Nominations for the Nobel Peace Prize usually begin to be received by the Committee in September of the preceding Award year.

    The short list of Nominations for the Nobel Peace Prize must usually be selected by the beginning of February of the same award year.

    The Nobel Committee typically comes to a conclusion in mid-September of the award year, but the official announcement occurs at the beginning of October of the award year.

    In August of 1939, the Nobel Committee secretly selected Neville Chamberlain and Adolf Hitler for (as Neville Chamberlain said back in 1938) “peace for our time”.

    But Hitler invaded Poland on September 1, 1939.

    So after the Committee decided that Neville Chamberlain and Adolf Hitler would share the Peace Prize, but before the Committee publicly announced who would receive it, Hitler Invaded Poland and Europe was at war. No Prize was given for 1939.

    This has always been a terrible embarrassment for the Committee. They now admit that Hitler was selected to share the Award with Chamberlain (it took decades for them to admit even that), but now they say they intended to give it to Chamberlain, and that their co-nomination of Hitler was only a form of satire. (sour grapes).

    Here is another one. Obama was Elected in November of 2008. That’s two months AFTER the early nominations for 2009 are normally received. Obama was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in October of 2009, but he was nominated literally before he took office.

    One last thing. Jimmy Carter and Al Gore both received the Nobel Peace Prize. But President Reagan, who ended the 44 year Cold War (that took the lives of millions of people), has never even been considered for the award. So who got the 1992 Nobel Peace Prize instead of Reagan? Rigoberta Menchú of Guatemala for her work for social justice.

    Receiving the Nobel Peace Prize is simply the mark of a goose-stepping Socialist.

    It should be renamed the Nobel Socialist Award. You would have fewer confused people.
