Support award of Nobel Peace Prize to Julian Assange

Target: Norwegian Nobel Committee
Region: GLOBAL

Petition Background (Preamble):

Julian Assange is the public face of Wikileaks, the organization that has done so much to expose the evil actions of the US and other governments - actions which those governments would rather keep secret.

He is currently under lock and key in the UK, on trumped-up charges widely seen as an excuse to get him into captivity with the aim of discouraging further disclosures of information which it is so evidently in the public interest to disclose.

An award of a Nobel Peace Prize to this courageous man would recognize his contribution to justice and would encourage further leaks of information from those who are considering revealing facts but who might otherwise decide not to.

Petition:

We, the undersigned, call on the Norwegian Nobel Committee to award the Nobel Peace Prize to Julan Assange, for services to human rights and justice.
