Last days to support Lula's Nobel Peace Campaign

The Lula Nobel Peace Prize campaign, initiated by the architect and human rights activist Adolfo Pérez Esquivel, will be closed on 31 January.  After visiting the president, Esquivel announced that he would work for the world to recognize Lula's struggle to end hunger and misery.

"As is well known, peace is not only the absence of war, or the death of one or many people, peace is also to give hope to the future of the people, especially to the most vulnerable sectors, victims of the "discard culture", said Esquivel, also a Nobel Prize Laureate.

With the initiatives implemented in the Lula administration, such as the "Zero Hunger" program and the "Bolsa Família", the former president promoted peace, included and protected more than 36 million people who often were sentenced to death and or to multiple forms of violence.

Since the announcement of the nomination to the Norwegian Nobel Committee Chairman Berit Reiss-Andersen, more than 490 thousand people have supported Lula's bid for the Nobel Peace Prize.

There are two forms of support Lula's nomination.

The general public can sign and share the petition on https://goo.gl/5n93a2 As for university professors, emeritus and associates from the areas of history, social sciences, law, philosophy, theology and religion, directors of peace and foreign policy research institutes, as well as heads of state and members of assemblies and national congresses the support should be written directly on the Norwegian Committee website https://www.nobelpeaceprize.org/Nomination/Nominator-application-form
