Suzanne Scholte wins prize for Western Saharan activism
Props are in order for Western Sahara activist Suzanne Scholte, who won the Seoul Peace Prize two weeks ago for her work for North Koreans and Sahrawis in the Defense Forum Foundation. Suzanne does great work for Western Sahara, so she more than deserves the $200,000 (!) prize money.
To get a sense of what a big deal this prize is, it's been won in the past by Muhammed Yunus, Kofi Annan, and Vaclav Havel. Nice work, Suzanne.
