ATHLETE AND ACTIVIST COLIN KAEPERNICK RECEIVES AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL’S AMBASSADOR OF CONSCIENCE AWARD

The Ambassador of Conscience Award celebrates individuals and groups who have furthered the cause of human rights through acts of conscience, confronting injustice and using their talents to inspire others.

The USA is a country where people can freely disrespect the flag using it as a thong, underwear, condom, disposable plates, bras, napkins, etc. but people got a heart attack just because he kneeled down silently and that is so “disrespectful” to the flag.

Really?

Kneeling down is a form of respect and humbling yourself before someone.

I fully agree with Chino and his statement.

The award was officially presented at a ceremony in Amsterdam, Netherlands, on 21 April 2018, to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the opening of Amnesty International’s national section in the country.

“The Ambassador of Conscience award celebrates the spirit of activism and exceptional courage, as embodied by Colin Kaepernick. He is an athlete who is now widely recognised for his activism because of his refusal to ignore or accept racial discrimination,” said Salil Shetty, Secretary General of Amnesty International.

“Just like the Ambassadors of Conscience before him, Colin Kaepernick chooses to speak out and inspire others despite the professional and personal risks. When high profile people choose to take a stand for human rights, it emboldens many others in their struggles against injustice.

Colin Kaepernick’s commitment is all the more remarkable because of the alarming levels of vitriol it has attracted from those in power.”

“I would like to thank Amnesty International for the Ambassador of Conscience Award. But in truth, this is an award that I share with all of the countless people throughout the world combating the human rights violations of police officers, and their uses of oppressive and excessive force.

To quote Malcolm X, when he said that he, ‘will join in with anyone – I don’t care what color you are – as long as you want to change this miserable condition that exists on this earth,’ I am here to join with you all in this battle against police violence,” said Colin Kaepernick.

“While taking a knee is a physical display that challenges the merits of who is excluded from the notion of freedom, liberty, and justice for all, the protest is also rooted in a convergence of my moralistic beliefs, and my love for the people.”

Colin Kaepernick explained why he sacrificed his career in the NFL to stand against systemic racism as he received Amnesty International’s highest honor.

PRINCE HARRY AND QUEEN ELIZABETH

The Queen slapped down US President Obama in an incredible video with her grandson Prince Harry to raise awareness of the Invictus Games

Prince Harry explains how he got the Queen to do Invictus Games video

BBC News

Prince Harry has revealed how the hilarious video where the Queen OWNS the Obamas came about.

The Queen slapped down US President Obama in an incredible video with her grandson Prince Harry to raise awareness of the Invictus Games.

In the hilarious footage, Harry and HRH are seen sitting on a sofa in Buckingham Palace, when the prince gets a call from Michelle Obama.

The ringtone?

US presidential anthem ‘Hail To The Chief’, naturally.

Then he picks up and receives a video showing the First Lady with President Barack Obama.

She says: “Hey Prince Harry remember when you told us to bring it at the Invictus Games?”

President Obama chips in with: “Careful what you wish for.”

Then an American competitor in the ‘Olympics for injured servicemen’ stood behind them makes a mic-dropping gesture and says: “Boom.”

The camera cuts back to Harry and the Queen, who witheringly says: “Oh really, please.”

Prince Harry turns to face the camera and mocks the Americans with his own: “Boom” and drops an imaginary microphone.

Harry said: “I’d seen their video and I spent maybe a week, thinking, ‘How the hell am I going to top this?’

Prince Harry explains how he got the Queen to do Invictus Games video

BBC News

~~Published on May 9, 2016~~

Prince Harry reveals to BBC News how he asked the Queen to get involved in the Invictus Games video after being challenged by the Obamas. He also told Andrew Marr about how his experiences while serving in Afghanistan – and the injuries that he witnessed fellow soldiers endure – were a “turning point” in his life.
But he played down comparisons between his charity and campaigning work and that of his late mother, Princess Diana.
He also spoke about the intrusion into his private life is “incessant”.

“Everyone has a right to privacy … Sadly, that line between public and private life is almost non-existent any
more.”

THE INVICTUS GAMES

Prince Harry, Justin Trudeau and the Obamas Compete for Laughs Before Invictus Games

A round of good-natured Twitter trash talk has erupted among the head of the British royal family and the leaders of the United States and Canada. And the Internet appears to be charmed by the tit-for-tat videos by Queen Elizabeth II, President Obama and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau of Canada.

It was all part of an effort to promote the 2016 Invictus Games.

The choreographed challenges began Friday, April 29, 2016. when Mr. Obama and his wife, Michelle, tweeted a short video at Prince Harry. It showed them standing with their arms crossed over their chests in front of a line of three uniformed officers, looking as if they had a bone to pick with the royal family.
