Award Ceremony Speech

Presentation Speech by Berit Reiss-Andersen, Chair of the Norwegian Nobel Committee, Oslo, 10 December 2017.

Your Majesties, Your Royal Highnesses, Distinguished Representatives of the Nobel Peace Prize Laureate, Your Excellencies, Distinguished Guests, Ladies and Gentlemen,

The International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN) has been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for 2017. On behalf of the Norwegian Nobel Committee, I take great pleasure in congratulating ICAN on this award.

ICAN is receiving the award for its work to draw attention to the catastrophic humanitarian consequences of any use of nuclear weapons and for its ground-breaking efforts to achieve a treaty-based prohibition of such weapons. ICAN's efforts have given new momentum to the process of abolishing nuclear weapons.

This year's Peace Prize follows in a tradition of awards that have honoured efforts against the proliferation of nuclear weapons and for nuclear disarmament. Twelve Peace Prizes have been awarded, in whole or in part, for this type of peace work. The first went to Philip Noel-Baker in 1959, and the most recent was awarded to Barack Obama in 2009. And now, this year, to the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN).

How low can the US stoop in Nicaragua Election
 
It has been reported in Reuters that “Grim television images from Nicaragua's 1980s civil war are being used by conservatives to scare people who would vote for left-wing former rebel and president Daniel Ortega in the Nov. 5 election.TV ads by center-right candidate Eduardo Montealegre and the Liberal Party's Jose Rizo show presidential front-runner Ortega in military garb and, in a separate shot, corpses being loaded onto a truck during the war between Ortega's Sandinista government and U.S.-backed Contra rebels.
 
"With this past, they won't fool you with polls," says Rizo's ad, over shots of fighting and corpses and accounts of Sandinista government troops killing indigenous people and raping women. He's a danger for Nicaragua," booms Montealegre's ad.” (Reuters, October 30, 06).
