This year´s Blue Planet Award to Angela Davis sends a clear and powerful message of how people can bring about real change. Time and time again, and against insurmountable odds, the will of the people are heard because people like Angela took to the streets and demanded that obvious wrongs be made right. She fought for the lives of many as if she would fight for her own. Anyone who takes for granted the 5-day work week, child labor laws, civil rights, humane working conditions, and fair and equal compensation, should not take lightly the efforts of people like Ms. Angela Davis. Her struggle has been humanity's struggle and because of it all life has benefited.
