Following the nomination of Edward Snowden for a Nobel Peace Prize by two Norwegian politicians, Infowars is launching a campaign to award the whistleblower with the honor for his courageous role in exposing mass surveillance and rampant government corruption.

Arguing that Snowden had “contributed to a more stable and peaceful world order, ” Baard Vegar Solhjell and Snorre Valen submitted Snowden’s name to be considered for the award, adding that, “His actions have in effect led to the reintroduction of trust and transparency as a leading principle in global security policies.”

Hundreds of nominations are expected to be made for the prestigious award, with members of any national assembly being allowed to suggest candidates. The final list will be decided on March 4 and the winner will be announced on October 10.

If we can achieve millions of ‘likes’ for this Facebook campaign page, it would exert huge influence on the Nobel Committee. Snowden is the people’s candidate, and we demand that the people be recognized by giving Snowden this award.

Snowden’s efforts to list the lid on the NSA’s myriad of unconstitutional spying programs have helped shift public opinion firmly against mass surveillance. A recent USA TODAY/Pew Research Center Poll found that 70% of Americans, “say they shouldn’t have to give up privacy and freedom in order to be safe from terrorism.”

Snowden’s actions have also led to the introduction of bills in state legislatures across the country aimed at cutting off water and power to NSA facilities while making it illegal for state authorities to use information obtained by the federal agency.

Critics have attempted to smear Snowden by labeling him as a traitor who has helped terrorists evade detection. However, there is no evidence whatsoever that NSA spying has stopped a single terrorist plot.

“These programs were never about terrorism: they’re about economic spying, social control, and diplomatic manipulation. They’re about power,” wrote Snowden.

In previous years, the Norwegian Nobel Committee has attracted derision for awarding the Peace Prize to candidates who represent the exact opposite of what the honor is supposed to symbolize – people like Barack Obama and the inherently corrupt European Union.

This is a huge opportunity to restore faith and prestige in the Nobel Peace Prize by awarding it to a truly deserving candidate, someone who has provoked a global firestorm of awakening and a renaissance for the ideals of freedom and privacy.
