Why do we consider, Julian Assange deserves the Nobel Peace Prize.
Since it`s origin, in 2006, Wikileaks was conceived as a solution for citizens from many countries to expose the injustices and the illegal activities of their governments. During the last months, Wikileaks and his visible head Julian Assange, have exposed to the world, the lies, abuses, and Human Rights violations behind the curtains of legality of the regimes of Kenia, Iceland, United States, India, Thailand and China, among dozens of others. With the disclosure of classified information Wikileaks and Julian Assange have contributed to create a more transparent world, where citizens are able to know about the activities of their governments, and when governments feel the pressure of their citizens, in the aim of creating a better world.
There are many situations and questions that have emerged with the leaks, many of them related with the limitations of journalism around the world, and the rights of the governments to preserve and to manage in a “secret” manner, sensible information. Many of these questions, arises as a consequence of the importance of the configuration of a real concept of freedom of the citizens to judge their governments, and the rights of the citizens to know the truth. In this regard, the following years must bring ahead the necessary legislation, that allows both the governments and the citizens to tackle these questions in a modern, totally open, democratic, ethic manner.
For decades, the Noble Peace Prize have represented the most important way of dignify and recognize the non violent efforts of leaders, and organizations around the world, in the struggle for freedom, justice, truth and peace. Many of the awarded have been signed as criminals, or menaces for corrupted governments. Many of the awarded have taken the decision of fight against big governments, corporations, influential organizations or even military complexes. Many of the awarded have struggle in the loneliness and have exposed inconvenient truths that have lay down for decades in secrecy. With the award, those courageous persons have had the possibility of continuing with their efforts, with the necessary confidence that comes with the support and the influence of the Nobel Peace Prize.
During the last years, Julian Assange, and Wikileaks, have exposed to the world extrajudicial assassinations in Kenia, have exposed massive and illegal assassinations of civilians and children in Iraq, have exposed massive Human Rights Violations in Iraq and Afganistan, have reported massive toxic waste dumping in the coasts of Africa, have reported unlawful and against Human Rights procedures in Guantamo Bay, and unlawful Bank practices and corruption in Iceland and many other countries. For his activities, in the year 2009, Julian Assange, and Wikileaks have been awarded with the International Amnesty Media Award.
Today, with this website, and due to the recent events related with the political persecution of courageous persons like Assange and the Wikileaks staff, for exposing the truth behind a false institutional legality, the people of the world, who support this petitions, ask for the Nobel Peace Price for Julian Assange and Wikileaks, for their efforts in creating a more transparent, more ethic and a better world for all of the people.
