5 Minutes of Peace: Black Lives Matter Global Network
Next up in our new series, 5 Minutes of Peace, is Black Lives Matter, recipients of the 2017 Sydney Peace Prize. In this video, Patrice Cullors, who accepted the Prize on behalf of the network, delves into the origins of the movement, as well as the need for change in Australia.
Her message of justice for all Black and Indigenous people is particularly resonant in light of the recent global protests in response to the death of George Floyd. It has also become a rallying cry in Australia where more than 400 Aboriginal people have died in custody since the Royal Commission into Deaths in Custody in 1991.
So, we hope you can take a moment to sit back and watch this slice of the powerful 2017 Black Lives Matter lecture.
