Spurred by this thread; well, it's time for NSG to rise to the challenge.

This is why I'm launching 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 following nominees are officially candidated to the First NSG Peace Prize.

Carlos Ray "Chuck" Norris (USA): 9 nominations
Kim Jong Il (DPRK): 7 nominations
Aung San Suu Kyi (Burma-Myanmar): 5 nominations
Julian Paul Assange (Australia): 5 nominations
Silvio Berlusconi (Italy): 4 nominations
Greg Mortenson (USA): 3 nominations
Roméo Antonius Dallaire (Canada): 3 nominations

You can read the motivations here below, in the nominations section.

Now for a little bit of advertisement:
Be sure to check these sorts of copycat threads ,The NSG Literature Prize and The NSG Economy Prize! :D


COMPLETE LIST OF NOMINATIONS

9 nominations (The Blaatschapen, Dingbu, Mike the Progressive, Hungarian Regions, Cadian Sector, Anagonia, Ostago, Les Templiers, Kingdom of Bob) Carlos Ray "Chuck" Norris (USA); "because he could destroy the world as we know it and he chooses not to (so far)."; "for his keeping the balance of North Korea and USA as North Korea is scared that Chuck Norris will get revenge."

5 nominations (Urstania, Londim, Charlotte Ryberg, Nanatsu no Tsuki, Meowfundland) Aung San Suu Kyi (Burma -Myanmar); "has never given up hope and her belief in bringing freedom to the people of Burma"; " her peaceful pressure has forced the military junta to negotiate with her."

7 nominations (Velgrae, Voek, Kent-Norman, Kushitestan, Dimzul, New Korongo, Nazi Occupied Britain) Kim Jung Il (DPRK); "for not nuking South Korea, even though Korean-Pop is horrible, and all South-Koreans look like poofs"; "for protecting tourists, making North Korea one of the safest countries to go on holiday to."

1 nomination (Calenhardon) Benjamin / Binyamin "Bibi" Netanyahu (Israel); "for his efforts to create peace in Israel through the eventual elimination of the so-called "Palestinians" and their spurious claims to land that rightfully belongs to Israel."

4 nominations (The Archregimancy, Crabulonia, Ceannairceach, Brutland and Norden) Silvio Berlusconi (Italy); "for his extraordinary achievement in making high politics a grand comedy, and thereby making the world a much happier place by always making sure we have something to laugh about."

2 nominations (Sebytania, The Republic of Lanos) Barack Hussein Obama (USA); "because he still hasn't started a new war. Even after the Nobel Peace Prize he got for the same reason, he could have invaded a random country. Maybe Kenya to prove his American heritage to the rednecks."

1 nomination (Rambhutan) Xe Services LLC (organization, USA); "for their tireless work in combat zones around the world, a model for all NGOs."

1 nomination (Barringtonia) Albert Arnold "Al" Gore, jr. (USA); "for inventing the Internet and thus keeping most of the world's opinionated rabble-rousers occupied and confined to online forums."

5 nominations (Bendira, Ravea, Aescentia, Vostria, Syvorji) Julian Paul Assange (Australia); "because of his dedication to maintaining an accurate historical record, as well as fighting tyranny."; " for having the balls to fight a corrupt system."

1 nomination (Bombers Moon) George Walker Bush (USA); "since his forced retirement from the Presidency, he has kept his stupid mouth shut thus promoting peace and good-will between people everywhere. Better late than never eh?"

1 nomination (Angleter) Salam Fayyad (Palestine); "for, unlike his predecessors, building a strong economy and the framework of a state in the West Bank, and thus advancing the possibility of an end to Israeli occupation and a lasting peace in the region."

3 nominations (Sibirsky, Xenohumanity, Buffett and Colbert) Greg Mortenson (USA); "for building schools for girls in places were they are more likely to be killed than know how to read." (Sibirsky gives further insight in his post); "he witnessed firsthand the wonders of compassion and sought to return the favour to those desperately in need. In his case, he provided hope and a chance at a future for many Afghan girls and their communities. In regions such as Waziristan (where he himself faced real danger), this is a monumental achievement."

1 nomination (Belschaft) Nicholas William Peter "Nick" Clegg (UK); "for doing more than any living person to create a new and vibrant movement of progressive students, unions and other individuals united in a desire for a better Britain where education will be accessible to all."

1 nomination (Wewtlandem) Vladimir Vladimirovič Putin (Russia); "for restoring Russia's humor and sarcasm to the world."

1 nomination (Serrland) Walter Menzies "Ming" Campbell (UK); "...showing a real breadth of talents, ... a genuinely pleasant individual, ... has been a fine example of class and professionalism in politics, as well as an excellent case of a former party-head stepping aside of his own will, without causing a real ruckus, and returning to a role as a backbencher with grace and dignity." (snipped: full motivation in Serrland's post)

1 nomination (Wilgrove) Christopher Todd "Chris" Titus (USA); "for 'How to prevent war' and 'On Racial relations' " (How to prevent war, On Racial relations)

3 nominations (Zoerb, Sunkistodia, The Corparation) the nuclear weapons (inanimate object; multinational); "for providing a very good reason for the superpowers not to go to war with each other."

2 nominations (Galloism, Oterro) Randall Patrick Munroe (USA); "for his quick wit and sharp humor, which has decimated many conflicts on NSG with a simple link. This lets peace reign over NSG for approximately 0.0000000003% of a second, before resuming hostilities in another thread."

1 nomination (Brogavia) Mahmoud Ahmadinejad (Iran); "for his work towards global peace via nuclear proliferation. Total nuclear nuclear proliferation is the only way to achieve a lasting world peace."

1 nomination (The Matthew Islands) Hugh Michael Rose (UK); "for showing an Iron Will in preventing the UN from properly intervening in the Bosnian war."

1 nomination (Shofercia) Mikheil "Misha" Saakashvili (Georgia); "for exposing that democratically appointed emperors are completely inept, attacking the Russian Army (Peacekeeper Battalion), thus enabling Russia to respond, as well as exposing most of war-starved maniacs in the Caucasian Region, thus enabling the Russians to finally pacify it so well, that no one is planning a major act, and the most that these maniacs can do, is an attack on a police station or a school, well away from the actual army base, under the proud banner of 'destroying education in the name of freedom' "

1 nomination (Pope Joan) Muhammad Yunus (Bangladesh); because "nothing beats spreading wealth around at the basic grassroots level to make the world a more peaceable place." (see the Grameen Bank)

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. Just let's keep it reasonable, ok?




ABOUT THE NOMINATIONS PHASE:

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.
EDIT: ...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
PEOPLE must be ALIVE 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!)

I've done a mistake once, I won't repeat it: NO NOMINATIONS VIA TG WILL BE ACCEPTED. ONLY POSTS.

I should get it for flying the Flag of Peace for almost six months! The flag of war and revolt hasn't been seen since.... July at least!

But seriously I dunno. There's a lot of people eligible for this prestigious award, I simply can't pick just one.

Laughter is the balm of the world, its healing power acknowledged across cultures. By bringing so much joy and laughter to the world, Signor Berlusconi has done more to heal and bind us together than any other modern democratically-elected politician. Truly, his accomplishment is unprecedented.
