A new digital platform allows anyone, anywhere in the world, to participate in Black Lives Matter protests, according to CNN.
After police killed several African-Americans, nationwide protests erupted across the country during the summer.
On September 1, three artists – Jason Lazarus, Siebren Versteeg and Stephanie Syjuco – launched Public Public Address, a website allowing anyone who is confined to their home to participate in the protests.
Whether it is due to disability or illness, the new initiative is meant to help those who want to take part in the protests but can't.
Lazarus explained the idea behind the new platform: "this is all about our solidarity with Black Lives Matter. We want people to be a part of the movement whether they can protest on the streets or not."
The idea is to allow anyone to post videos of themselves protesting, even if they are doing it at home or in their own backyard.
Everyone is welcome to support, so it seems.
Luccie Logan, a 16-year-old from Orlando who used the platform, said that "it is so important that everyone works as hard as they can to provide justice and equality."
Once the videos are uploaded to the website, they are being grouped together with a myriad of other videos into a single collage, thus creating a virtual protest.
So far, the burgeoning initiative seems to be doing well, with over a hundred videos being received since the website launched.
And with no expiry date for protests in sight, it is likely that this new virtual way of protesting is just getting started.
