What is this fuss? And who is this Nobel Peace Prizer winner Liu Xiaobo?

Posted on: December 25, 2012

What is this fuss, and who is this Nobel Peace Prize winner Liu Xiaobo?

How many of you cared to remember a name like Liu Xiaobo?

How many of you ever read any translated work of Liu Xiaobo?

How many Chinese ever read an article of Liu Xiaobo? 

Does it make any difference if Liu Xiaobo was awarded a Nobel Peace Prize in 2010?

What if a few multinational news media decided to label Liu Xiaobo an icon for freedom, simply because he was jailed for a few months?

What if Archbishop Desmond Tutu (awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1984 for his work fighting the racist Apartheid system in South Africa) is circulating a petition for the release of Liu Xiaobo?

Liu Xiaobo  was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2010 for his “long and non-violent struggle for fundamental human rights“.

Today, Liu Xiaobo remains in jail, as China’s most famous political prisoner.

Xiaobo is serving an 11-year term for his activism demanding that the Chinese government make his country more democratic and make its courts more independent.

His wife, who has never been convicted of any crime, is under house arrest. This is not just.

Before signing any petition, I want to be clear on:

1. Did Xiaobo visited the sweat shop factories and communicated with the modern slaves?

2. Did Xiaobo talked in person with the university chairmen who are pressuring graduate students to work for Foxcom as slaves a couple of days and nights per week?(These slave factories manufacturing Apple iPhone and other products for US multinational companies)

3. Did Xiaobo got engaged on the field and lead activists to demonstrate against infamy and indignities?

It worth that people asking to sign on petition to “enlighten” readers on the field work and engagement of the “hero” so that we learn what it takes to receive a peace award…

 

 Archbishop Desmond Tutu wrote: I am humbled to share the Nobel legacy with someone so brave as Xiaobo. Today, with more than 130 other Nobel Prize winners, I am calling on the new Chinese leader, Xi Jinping, to release Liu Xiaobo from prison and his wife, Xia, from house arrest.

This is a historic moment in China.

Every 10 years, the Chinese government hands over power to a new generation of leadership. As of a few weeks ago, Xi Jinping has succeeded his predecessor, Hu Jintao, in leading China — and hopes are that he will open China to reform more than any of his predecessors.

The Chinese government doesn’t usually listen to voices from outside the country. (Or voices from within the country, for that matter!) But the world has a singular opportunity to push for change when China’s leadership changes over every 10 years.

This is our chance! Humans are wonderful, and we can do amazing things when we act together.

I have seen this time and time again with my own eyes.

Click here to sign my petition now, and call on China’s new Premier Xi Jinping to release Nobel Peace Prizer winner Liu Xiaobo and his wife Liu Xia.

Note: Do you know that Oslo (Norway) extends only the Nobel peace prize, while Stockholm (Sweden) selects all the other Nobel prizes?

And yet, Oslo was doing a terrible job in its selection for this single prize. For example:

1. Oslo voted for a newly elected president (Obama) before witnessing any peaceful achievement.  Obama is still assassinating people using drones, and adopting double tap tactics in order to kill those coming to rescue the injured and killed from the first missile attack, and Obama has been at it for four years now, hundreds of those drone attacks, killing hundred (90% being civilians)

2. Oslo awarded master terrorist late Israeli PM, Menahim Begin, the peace prize. Begin even managed to terrorize his masters the British colonial mandated power in Palestine and committed genocide on scores of Palestinian villages… And achieved his “peaceful activities” by committing the genocide in the Palestinian camps of Sabra and Shatila in Lebanon 1982.

3. Oslo awarded Shimon Peres the same prize. Peres is the current president of Israel and who launched a preemptive war on Lebanon in 1996,  just after receiving the award and bombed a UN compound in Qana (south Lebanon), killing 100 civilians who came for refuge. This “diplomat” dotted Israel with nuclear weapons from France in the 60’s.
