The Black Lives Matter movement has been proposed as the recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize.
The proposal was made by Petter Eide, a Norwegian Member of Parliament.
Eide said the movement is one of the strongest global movements for working with racial injustice.
“They have also been spread to many many countries, building up… awareness on the importance of fighting racial injustice,” he said.
The Black Lives Matter movement began in the United States in 2013 but received further impetus after the death of George Floyd at the hands of police last May.
The deadline for submissions is tomorrow, with the prize to be announced in October.
The last winner of the Nobel Peace Prize is the World Food Programme, an agency of the United Nations.
