Snorre Valen has nominated WikiLeaks for a Nobel Peace Prize. WikiLeaks has shown us the behind the scenes happenings of governments, where the governments would not have ever shown us this type of information.
He has been heralded as a diamond in the rough by the public and as a terrorist by the government. Governments saying that a normal man who has not deliberately killed anyone is a terrorist, yet, the confidential information he leaked makes him that said terrorist, funny.
Snorre has said "Liu Xiabao was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize last year for his struggle for human rights, democracy and freedom of speech in China. Likewise: Wikileaks have contributed to the struggle for those very values globally, by exposing (among many other things) corruption, war crimes and torture - some times even conducted by allies of Norway. And most recently: By disclosing the economic arrangements by the presidential family in Tunisia, Wikileaks have made a small contribution to bringing down a 24-year-lasting dictatorship.
It would be a crime to ban or oppose the right to publish such information. It should instead be protected, regardless of what we might think of the contents of some (or even all) of the published material. I am proud to nominate Wikileaks for the Nobel Peace Prize."
