*NSG Peace Prize* 2013

Postby Risottia » Fri Dec 27, 2013 12:16 pm

The NSG Peace Prize Committee presents
The Fourth Edition of the

NationStates General

PEACE PRIZE

- Year 2013 -


PROCLAMATION
The NationStates General Peace Prize Committee,
having taken into account the results of the proceedings, presents


Malala Yousafzai

with the Fourth Edition of the NationStates General Peace Prize - Year 2013.


The Prize is awarded her for contributing to the rights of women and girls in education in Pakistan and for her pro-peace message, like how she talked about never committing an act of violence as that would put her on the same level as the Taliban. She is an advocate for women's rights and access to education in a region where even the most basic rights of women are violently repressed, Malala has endured attacks on her own life while tirelessly raising awareness of the issue of access to education for women. She has powerfully stood up to the Taliban and their violent campaign against the dignity of women. Malala's peaceful yet strong message of a better world where all women are free to receive an education without fear has been an incredible inspiration to girls and women around the world who have been unjustly denied access to the education they deserve.

the Chair of the Committee
Risottia



PROCEEDINGS

Just like last year, it's time for the NSG PEACE PRIZE!
Every one of us will be able to nominate a single RL individual, or a single RL organization, which deserves to be honoured for the extraordinary contribution given to the cause of human rights and/or peace. Please explain summarily what the contribution is.
Also inanimated objects are eligible, see rules below.
The present and fourth edition of the prize will be considered as the 2013 edition, even if the proceedings and the proclamation will be completed in 2014.


An apology
The Committee hopes you will be so kind to understand that other pressing issues have kept it from keeping up with the traditional schedule. The Committee will try to start the proceedings for the Fifth Edition in October 2014.
The Committee wishes also to thank Regnum Dominae for reminding it of the schedule, thus letting know that the Committee's work is appreciated and awaited by someone.

for the Committee, Risottia

NOTES & RULES

ABOUT THE NOMINATIONS PHASE:
  • The nominations phase is now CLOSED.
  • Every single nomination will have to be supported by at least 5 NSGers to pass to the next stage - poll between the 10 most supported nominations. ...if less than 10 candidates will have reached 5 nominations, I'll try to include in the final poll also those who got 4, or eventually 3, nominations only.
  • REAL LIFE individuals, REAL LIFE organizations. No NS Nations, groups of NS Nations, or otherwise fictional nominees.
  • PEOPLE must be ALIVE at the moment of the nomination. ORGANIZATIONS must be ACTIVE at the moment of the nomination.
  • INANIMATED OBJECTS accepted also, provided they are single, physical objects still existing at the moment of the nomination. As a guideline - it should be something eligible as UNESCO World Heritage (material or immaterial).
  • ALWAYS provide a good explanation of the contribute your nominee has given.
  • ONLY ONE nomination per NSGer, please. THIS INCLUDES SUPPORTING OTHER NOMINATIONS: if you already nominated someone you cannot support someone else's nomination. You can retire a nomination/support you previously made/gave (I'd prefer you didn't though, because the thread would become a mess!). And no, you can't support more than one nomination. I thought it was clear.
  • Note: If you aren't submitting a new nomination, and are instead going to support someone that has already been nominated, be sure to check the WHOLE nomination list.
  • Please, campaign for/against nominees just in the POLL phase.
  • NO NOMINATIONS VIA TG WILL BE ACCEPTED. ONLY POSTS IN THIS THREAD.
  • Previous winners of the prize cannot be nominated.
  • Support by puppet nations - identified as such by NS mods - will be considered void.

Note: considering how some people are evidently NOT reading the rules above, the committee will consider as void the posts with double nominations or supports.


ABOUT THE POLL PHASE:
  • The poll is now OPEN and it will last 5 days.
  • YES you can change your vote in the poll.
  • NO you can't vote for more than one candidate.
  • NO you don't have necessarily to vote for the same candidate you nominated.
  • YES you can campaign for/against candidates ON THIS THREAD DURING THE POLL PHASE. Just let's keep it reasonable, ok?



NOMINATIONS LIST


  • Malala Yousafzai (individual, Pakistan)
    for contributing to the rights of women and girls in education in Pakistan and for her pro-peace message, like how she talked about never committing an act of violence as that would put her on the same level as the Taliban. She is an advocate for women's rights and access to education in a region where even the most basic rights of women are violently repressed, Malala has endured attacks on her own life while tirelessly raising awareness of the issue of access to education for women. She has powerfully stood up to the Taliban and their violent campaign against the dignity of women. Malala's peaceful yet strong message of a better world where all women are free to receive an education without fear has been an incredible inspiration to girls and women around the world who have been unjustly
    denied access to the education they deserve.
    24 nominations:Thafoo, Regnum Dominae, Rocopurr, Nevanmaa, 4years, Zorbaekhan Colony, The Jahistic Unified Republic, Farnhamia, Aeken, The United Communist Solar Republic, Napkiraly, The Scientific States, Arkiasis, The Huskar Social Union, Arglorand, Norstal, Charlotte Ryberg, Stern des Meeres, Saveyou Island, Sedikal, Taoju, Bleckonia, Liriena, Blekksprutia


  • Edward Joseph Snowden (individual, United States of America)
    because he "has - in a heroic effort at great personal cost - revealed the existence and extent of the surveillance, the U.S. government devotes [to] electronic communications worldwide. By putting light on this monitoring program - conducted in contravention of national laws and international agreements - Edward Snowden has helped to make the world a little bit better and safer...” (Stefan Svallfors)
    9 nominations: Occupied Deutschland, Dutch Union of americana, Aggicificicerous, New Aerios, Sahrani DR, Miracum-Izmir, The Alma Mater, Northwest Slobovia, The Free Kingdom of Proprius
    Sahrani DR's proposal about extending the nomination to Anonymous Whistleblower has been rejected by the original proponent.

  • International Federation of the Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement (organisations , multinational)
    These organisations have worked tirelessly, along with others, to assist the civilians of Syria, who have for the last 2 and a half years been caught in the crossfire of a brutal sectarian conflict. While politicians bicker over how to respond, the Red Cross/Red Crescent are on the ground providing food, water, medical supplies and shelter to thousands, if not millions of Syrian civilians. These organisations have arguably done more to help the innocent people of Syria more than any other. They have also done the same for places such as Central African Republic and South Sudan. These organisations' work is truly honourable.
    10 nominations: Beta Test, Len Hyet, Shaggai, Vareiln, Holyhex, The Saint James Islands, Britanno, National Empire, LiamHerndon, Ainin
    Len Hyet's proposed modification (including the Red Crescent) has been accepted.

  • Pope Francis alias Jorge Mario Bergoglio (individual, Argentina/Vatican City)
    Francis’ election as Pope has brought his lifelong good work to an international audience. His rejection of many luxuries offered to him has set an example for humility and self-sacrifice to a materialist modern world, and his efforts, unparalleled among world leaders, to embrace ordinary people – in particular poor or disabled people often ignored or shunned by society – has reminded us of the virtues of compassion and common decency. Francis’ strong emphasis on charity has brought it to the forefront of both the Catholic Church and society in general, and he has been a leading voice for peace and dialogue across the world. He has also worked against the careerist, haughty, prejudiced, and indifferent elements in the Church at the root of its recent failures. Essentially, Pope Francis has been a new, powerful voice worldwide, simply inspiring us all to be better people.
    6 nominations: Jerusalemian, Nightkill the Emperor, Angleter, Raurosia, Seriong, Puerto Tyranus, Vistany
    Nomination proposal modified by Angleter and modification accepted by Jerusalemian.

  • Human Rights Activists in Russia (organisation, Russia)
    Activists in Russia of various smaller groups, particularly related to the causes of free speech, women's rights, and LGBT rights, have recently surged in their activity in response to several violations of rights at the hands of the current Russian government. Despite sometimes limited resources, these activists have protested in civil disobedience even at the risk of being in prison indefinitely. These activists have already started to yield results as the Russian government has felt the need to free some political prisoners for diplomatic reasons.
    5 nominations: Post-Keynesian Economics, Estado Paulista, Americanada, Ermarian, SunTingWong

  • Hassan Rouhani (individual, Iran)
    Rouhani has showed through his words and actions he wants to fight extremism. In a fake election, where the ayatollah picked the candidates, the reform-minded one won. He also helped navigate the nuclear deal, and accepted a phone call from the US president, which is leaps and bounds better than his predecessor.
    4 nominations: Gallup, L Ron Cupboard, Ailiailia, Pope Joan

  • Denis Mukwege (individual, DR Congo)
    who has treated victims of gang rape (used as a military move to demoralize the civilian populace) and is working against this particular strategy. He has had attempts on his life and still works for these victims.
    1 nomination: NeoCommunist Nazi Feminists From Hades

  • United Nations (organisation, multinational)
    This large organisation has been working in South Sudan to help keep people safe in the wake of the rebellious situation that has arisen out of a suspected coup attempt. The concern of the UN is keeping people safe and has recently decided that to do this properly more peacekeepers are needed, which will eventually bring the number in South Sudan up to 12,500. Their work essentially involves assisting the tens of thousands of people who seek shelter in UN compounds, but they also try to reduce violence (but think this isn't so possible).
    1 nomination: Forsher

  • Vladimir Vladimirovič Putin (individual, Russia)
    Despite the fact that he's some quasi dictator whose party basically controls the assortment of yes-men that comprise the Duma, I nominate Putin not because of his domestic policies but because of his (and his government's) policies towards the conflict in Syria, in particular forcing the US to back down on a series of strikes in Syria and proposing the removal and destruction of Syria's chemical weapons, undoubtedly preventing a wider conflict in the Middle East and (hopefully) saving more lives.
    6 nominations: Costa Fierro, The Serbian Empire, The IASM, Brissia, Shofercia, Soviet Russia Republic

  • Claudia Paz y Paz (individual, Guatemala)
    Despite threats to her life and safety, she was instrumental in the crackdown on organized crime in one of the most violent countries in the world and was the first Guatemalan Attorney-General to prosecute those who committed war crimes in the near four decade civil war. Has arguably done much more than other more prominent people from a far less visible stand point.
    4 nominations: Vitaphone Racing, Risottia, Hetalian Indie Rio de Janeiro, Cestyr

  • John Forbes Kerry (individual, United States of America)
    for his negotiations that kept us (the US I guess) out of actual war. its nice to promote social peace but it is a feat to keep us out of war in Syria when the congressional drumbeats are drowning out reason. it is an amazing feat to get any concession from iran, bring them to the negotiating table and have them agree to suspend their nuclear program for any length of time. and to keep the idiots in the senate from imposing extra sanctions on iran but that may not have been his doing.
    2 nominations: Ashmoria, Conserative Morality

  • François Gérard Georges Nicolas Hollande (individual, France)
    for trying to bring peace to Mali and Central African Republic. Hollande sent French troops to Mali to fight against islamist extremists who were trying to create an Islamistic state where sharia law would rule. French troops have been fighting together with Malian army and have been mostly successful so far. In Central African Republic France is supporting the fight against Seleka, an alliance of militias.
    1 nomination: Neuhausen

  • the XIV Dalai Lama alias Tenzin Gyatso alias Lhamo Dondrub (individual, Tibet/India)
    HH has worked endlessly for the continued peace between the TGE (Tibetan Government in Exile) and the PRC's government, wishing for the best for his people via a nonviolent way. He has not advocated for a violent confrontation, and has discouraged the use of violence amongst Tibetan rioters within Lhasa and other Tibetan cities. Instead, HH has taught us that a peaceful solution will triumph over the enemies, and has advocated equality for people of all religions, races, sexes, and creeds.
    1 nomination: Cill Airne

  • the Gezi youth (organisation, Turkey)
    It all started with the government attempting to destroy a symbolic park and replace it with a mall and brutally attacking peaceful activists who were protesting the plan with tear gases and water cannons, which sparked a nationwide uprising that can also be considered an outburst of a 10 years of accumulated anger against the AKP government based on its increasing authoritarianism and conservative pressures especially upon at least half of the population which pursues a modern secular life style (such as curbs on alcohol, deterring of kissing in public) as well as undermining of the basic founding principles of the Republic. (snipped: more on Kemalist's original proposal)
    1 nomination: Kemalist

  • 2013 Protestors in Turkey, Brazil, Egypt, and Ukraine (organisation, multinational)
    Tireless struggle against corruption, authoritarianism, dictatorship and for democracy and Human Rights in their countries, even in the face of imprisonment, injury, and even death. Their painful struggles should be honored as one of the greatest sacrifices of 2013 for Human Rights with the NSG Peace Prize. Dictatorship is very difficult and painful to fight, yet these people fought (and some still fight) against the corruption, brutality, and authoritarianism either emerging in their country or them attempting to remove it. Their struggles should never forgotten, so that is why I, United Provinces of Atlantica, nominate them for the 2013 NSG Peace Prize.
    1 nomination: United Provinces of Atlantica

  • Gerard Jan Joling (Herrebrugh, The Armed Republic of Dutch coolness)
    SUSPENDED for insufficient motivation

  • European Union (EUstan)
    SUSPENDED for insufficient motivation

  • Jose Mujica (Czechanada)
    SUSPENDED for insufficient motivation

  • Rafael Edward "Ted" Cruz (Frisivisia, Chernoslavia)
    SUSPENDED for insufficient motivation

  • Bashar al-Assad (Gallup)
    RETIRED by original proponent

  • An inanimate carbon rod (Death Metal)
    REJECTED for failing the nomination requirements (inanimate object not eligible for UNESCO World Heritage)

  • Norman Borlaug (Americanada)
    REJECTED for failing the nomination requirements (dead at the time of nomination)

  • The Taliban members who shot Malala Yousafzai (Priory Academy USSR)
    REJECTED for failing the nomination requirements (not contributing to the cause of human rights or peace)

  • Miley Ray Cyrus alias Destiny Hope Cyrus (Ifreann)
    REJECTED for failing the nomination requirements (not contributing to the cause of human rights or peace)

  • Cheap low-quality manufactured bullshit (Phocidaea)
    REJECTED for failing the nomination requirements (inanimate object not eligible for UNESCO World Heritage)

Edward Snowden, because somebody has to nominate him so why not me?
Or because: "“Edward Snowden has - in a heroic effort at great personal cost - revealed the existence and extent of the surveillance, the U.S. government devotes [to] electronic communications worldwide. By putting light on this monitoring program - conducted in contravention of national laws and international agreements - Edward Snowden has helped to make the world a little bit better and safer...” -Stefan Svallfors

Malala Yousafzai - an advocate for women's rights and access to education in a region where even the most basic rights of women are violently repressed, Malala has endured attacks on her own life while tirelessly raising awareness of the issue of access to education for women. She has powerfully stood up to the Taliban and their violent campaign against the dignity of women.

I support peace in Israel and Palestine. The governments and people in power on all sides are an absolute disgrace, and their unwillingness to pursue peace is a disservice to the people they are meant to be serving. The status quo is not simply untenable; it is unquestionably unacceptable.

An inanimate carbon rod.

Because Snowden doesn't deserve it, and I can't nominate Mandela.

Also inanimate carbon rods have been used throughout 2013 to protect the world from devastation, the unite all peoples within our nation, and to extend our reach to the stars above. Quite literally with extremely long carbon rods. Also because when you do the safety dance, you need a maypole, and a maypole is one of the many jobs that are filled by the inanimate carbon rod. Inanimate carbon rods also have been proven to lower cholesterol and reduce the risk of lung cancer. Inanimate carbon rods do not believe Carthage must be destroyed, but rather renovated and given a shopping mall with an IMAX theatre and PF Chang's. And you know Inanimate Carbon Rods are all kind and intelligent people, because they hate the Tampa Bay Rowdies and New York Jets.

Bigger than Snowden's integrity.

So at least one nanometer long.

Pope Francis. *nods*
True teaching is not an accumulation of knowledge; it is an awaking of consciousness which goes through successive stages.

The best and shortest road towards knowledge of truth is Nature.

Social good is what brings peace to family and society.

I think Malala should win. And she will. (Probably).
Zorbaekhan Colony is a dominion of The allied peoples of Zorbae.
'He paws in the valley and rejoices in his strength.
He goes to meet the armed men,
He mocks at fear and is not afraid,
Neither does he turn from the sword.
The quiver rattles against him,
The glittering spear and the shield. ' ~Bible, Book of Job, 39:19-25.

Kindly provide some three-four lines explaining why he's worthy of the NSG Peace Prize.

I remind EVERYONE that one-line nominations won't be considered, AND that the Committee will take the liberty of requiring either further explanation or a shorter one, as the case may be.

International Committee of the Red Cross-This organisation has worked tirelessly, along with others, to assist the civilians of Syria, who have for the last 2 and a half years been caught in the crossfire of a brutal sectarian conflict. While politicians bicker over how to respond, the ICRC is on the ground providing food, water, medical supplies and shelter to thousands, if not millions of Syrian civilians. This organisation has arguably done more to help the innocent people of Syria more than any other. They have also done the same for places such as Central African Republic and South Sudan. This organisation's work is truly honourable.

Are you going to support my nomination then?
I support peace in Israel and Palestine. The governments and people in power on all sides are an absolute disgrace, and their unwillingness to pursue peace is a disservice to the people they are meant to be serving. The status quo is not simply untenable; it is unquestionably unacceptable.

She has powerfully stood up to the Taliban and their violent campaign against the dignity of women. Malala's peaceful yet strong message of a better world where all women are free to receive an education without fear has been an incredible inspiration to girls and women around the world who have been unjustly denied access to the education they deserve.

I agree and nth this nomination.
