The United States Library of Congress has selected our website blacklivesmatter.uk for inclusion in the Library's historic collection of Internet materials related to the Protests Against Racism Web Archive.
They consider our website to be an important part of this collection and the historical record.
The Library of Congress preserves important cultural artifacts and provides enduring access to them. The Library's traditional functions, acquiring, cataloging, preserving and serving collection materials of historical importance to foster education and scholarship, extend to digital materials, including websites. The libary web archives are important because they contribute to the historical record, capturing information that could otherwise be lost. With the growing role of the web as an influential medium, records of historic events could be considered incomplete without materials that were "born digital" and never printed on paper.

Black Lives Matter is simple and clear in its phrase as a conceptual unit, connective words and in statement -' Black Lives Matter' - and is an unowned global collection consisting of ideas, grassroots initiatives and shared interest of many and various concerns calling out anti-black racism, inequalities and social injustices.
We are fundamentally a social and human rights concern, part of this collective and and a cog in the wheels thay keep turning seeking equal justice, BLACKLIVESMATTER.UK should not to be confused and or conflated as a political outfit, or affiliated witth the BLM, Black Lives Matter political organisation, global foundation based in the US. We strongly believe racism transcends politics.
We believe Black lives matter, Black lives must matter, and we use our platform to advocate and works tirelessly to educate, raise awareness and include you to helo us call upon each citizens to help play a role in eliminating racism from society and all our lives.
BLACKLIVESMATTER.UK is not a registered charity, and has no plans to become a charity. We do however carry out charitable work, work with and support UK charities and charitable causes.
This is by no means an exhaustive list of Black Lives Matter values or talks for all Black Lives Matter independent chapters, coalitions, collective or groups whose ideologies and or objectives may be the same, similar or even differ to some extent. We do not claim to talk for the entire Black Lives Matter global organisations, coalitions, collectives or groups here in the UK or abroad but does give an indication of the many aspects of Black Lives Matters and the Black Lives Matter Movement. We do not claim to be spokespersons, agents for the Black Lives Matter movement as a whole or the entire Black population but do stand in unity and solidarity for racial equality, equity and social justice and for black lives to matter in every nation and corners of the world.
Social and Civic Justice Movement working to dismantle structural systemic, systematic and institutional racism.
Black Lives Matter activists and supporters are the revolutionary, revolutionist and is an architect of change. Black Lives Matter UK is not committed to the same political stance or means as political radical far left activists but absolutely mean business nevertheless. The revolutionary wants to sweep away the bad institutions and social relations of the present.
The black lives matter revolutionary has a vision of the new society which the black lives matter campaign and movement is aiming at creating. The need to reconstruct is not absent from reasonable discussion, the art of breaking silence is to break down the walls of racism.
The revolutionary is intellectually committed to the achievement of a new concrete social order that is better than the present; and this means we are committed to demonstrating the feasibility of the new order that eradicates systemic and systematic racism in our society, exposing, stripping and cleansing the racist mind-set of individuals and societies which perpetuate the immoral belief that certain groups are superior to others.
We stand with our allies to educate, break the silence and to stamp our racism for good.
Our community supporters and allies are made up of ordinary people in Britain with support across the world, of course we would never claim to speak for everyone and this why we give people a platform and a voice to talk for themselves.
We take a non-partisan stance to support and further the cause that black lives matter, we stand with the oppressed and not with the oppressor. We promote no political position as black people, brown people, white people, and any other allies, individuials will hold a wide variety of views that are their own while still being ardent and strong supporters of Black Lives Matter and anti-racist. Being a strong supporter of black lives matter should determine an anti-racists vote for an anti-racist party that stands against racism and will break their silence. Being non-racist isn’t enough to eradicate racism from our society, being an active anti-racist is.
What does defunding the police mean?
'Defunding the police’ is often misunderstood and sounds worrying and alarming on hearing new grabbing headline through social the media and mainstream media. The public often mistakes defunding the police for either abolishment or taking away all funding from the police service; this is not what defunding the police means.
Whilst we feel there may be merit in diverting police funding to other services in the community who are in a far better position to understand and adequately support our youth, youth services, and mental health in the community and more, that said we do not hold any position on defunding the police without and until the wider sections of society fully understand what this all entails, so at this time we do not support defunding the police at this time and stories of abolishing prisons is not a viable option to consider in the UK.
We do and will work with all people of all races, ethnicities and backgrounds who support black lives matter goal to eradicate racism.
Black people have the fundamental right to live, be educated, have equal opportunity to work, access to health care and services, and to be treated as equals within all societal systems, institutions and social settings. despite over 400 years of black residency in the UK the treatment of black people is not on par with white people, regardless of the laws of the land; race and equal rights acts created to protect from racial discrimination are hardly worth the paper they are written on.
We've found many come to this site to vent, shout, and make some noise for those hurting. Others quietly tell of enduring racism or admit to being complicit in supporting racism all their lives with white silence and no longer wish to remain silent, pledging to never to be silent or silenced again. Change is going to come.
We're attempting to work together to break the white silence that is the perpetrating vehicle that oils the spinning wheels that carries and supports and enables racists to thrive, rise and flourish keeping racism alive in Britain. Racism should never be driven by silence or have a comfortable home to reside.
We work simultaneously with independent BLM activist’s coalitions groups across the UK and world. Some activists work covertly and overtly with ordinary people work campaigning, taking to the streets and straight to the heart of the people fighting racial, social and criminal injustice.
There are many independent activist groups across the UK who do and will not publicly identify themselves, nor having leadership or declare leadership, no office base or website to go to, having a small or for some a huge interest and following, preferring a profile status on social media platforms alone.

We do this so the upcoming and next generation of black children and black adults WILL NOT have to be told "you have to work twice as hard as a white person and for less". We do this so that they will be equal to white counterparts in all areas of society so black people WILL be able to fully participate in all levels of society that have previously been denied to them because of the colour of skin.
Black children need to be treated fairly in education. Black boys should no longer be easy targets for police. As soon as they reach 10-11 (the age of criminal responsibility) they become targets because of their black skin. Black people should no longer be brutalised by the police service and accept that as just “the way it is”. NO MORE. Black people have finally had enough.
