"Norway helps dictators"

"Sad, but not surprising," says Wojoud Mejalli, an award-winning activist and journalist from Yemen about the Norwegian arms sale.

"It's awful in Yemen right now," Mejalli told Ny Tid. She was active during the Arab Spring, and has received the Bjørnson Prize for her work as a human rights activist. She herself lives in Norway and is married to a Norwegian journalist, but her whole family is left in Yemen. "People do not have water and electricity, and you hear the bombs so that it is difficult to sleep. Saudi Arabia and the coalition are bombing basic facilities such as factories, schools and hospitals. "
Her family does their best to have a normal life in the midst of the chaos of war. Mejalli's brother has chosen to continue his studies at the university, himself. . .

  1. These were nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize:

    The first two are considered two of history's greatest tyrants, while Stalin is considered a tyrant by most, or when it is politically favorable – a bit after the geopolitical situation.

    Henry Kissinger, best known for his involvement in Vietnam, was not only nominated but also awarded the prize. At the same time, a leading figure in Vietnam named Lê Đức Thọ was also nominated, but he declined as he believed there was still a lot of work to be done before peace was secured.

    The Nobel Peace Prize should be depoliticized faster than shrinking or liquidated. That one mass murderer or warlord receives the award is one too many.
