WikiLeaks Nominated for Nobel Peace Prize

Snorre Valen, a Norwegian politician, has nominated WikiLeaks for a Nobel Peace Prize, citing Julian Assange’s contribution to democracy and freedom of speech worldwide.

From CNN:

Stortinget parliamentarian Snorre Valen said he nominated WikiLeaks because it has helped “redraw the map of information freedom.”

“Liu Xiabao was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize last year for his struggle for human rights, democracy and freedom of speech in China,” Valen wrote on his blog. “Likewise, WikiLeaks have contributed to the struggle for those very values globally, by exposing (among many other things) corruption, war crimes and torture.”
