Thread Name: Pete Seeger: Nobel Peace -Updated-deadline Feb1!
Subject: Pete Seeger: Nomination for Nobel Peace
Apologies if this has already been posted:
"Pete Seeger has been an ambassador for Peace and Social Justice over the course of his 87 year lifetime. As a prominent musician his songs, messages and performance style have worked to engage other people, particularly the youth, in causes to end the Vietnam war, ban nuclear weapons, work for international solidarity, and ecological responsibility. It is time that a cultural worker receives the recognition that this work has great influence and global reach, that it is not only a medium of entertainment but of education, compassion and fraternity."
