On this coming Thursday it was scheduled an event at the Swedish Foreign Office, where the organization Right Livelihood awarding the Alternative Nobel Prize, was to make the official announcement: “And the winners is. . . Edward Snowden!”
. . . However, the National Swedish Televison SvT announced today in their main news-sending “Rapport”, that Carl Bildt has “strongly reacted against the bestowing of the alternative Nobel Prize to Edward Snowden”, and hence ports the organization from the Ministry offices.
The Swedish MSM, e.g. SvD – and of course, The Local – rushed to publish Carl Bildt’s statements on he “had nothing to do” with the decision of banning the award-ceremony from the ministry where he happens to be the boss, and that the all thing was due to “new security routines” [sic] after 30years uninterrupted routines regarding Right Livelihood awards at the Foreign Office locals.
Since 1985, the organization Right Livelihood Award is announcing the annual winners of the traditional alternative Nobel Prize at the flamboyant locals of the Swedish Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Err…Until right now, after they communicated to the Foreign Office that the 2014 prize-winner is Edward Snowden.
The reaction of the boss at the Foreign Office, Minister Carl Bildt, was to oust the organization giving the alternative Nobel Prize from the Foreign office. End of story.
Previously, the Swedish Foreign Office under the command of minister Carl Bildt had erased Snowden and Assange from the invited list to an international conference in Sweden – The Stockholm Internet Forum, which focused on ‘global development as well as surveillance’ – amidst protests from other participants and related international community.
The editor of the Professors’ Blog had previously nominated Edward Snowden, Julian Assange and Chelsea Manning for the regular Nobel Peace Prize, at the Nobel Committee in Oslo.
