Cuban Media Petitions Fidel for Nobel Peace Prize

Wednesday, 02 December 2009 12:55 AM EST

HAVANA - A state-run Cuban media dispatch announced this week that a movement of undisclosed origin has begun on the Internet to promote Cuban dictator Fidel Castro for the 2010 Nobel Peace Prize. The article cites no attribution but says Castro has all the qualities of a peacemaker.

"An on-line petition has been started to propose the historic Leader of the Cuban Revolution, Fidel Castro, as a candidate for the Nobel Peace Prize in 2010 in recognition of the social, cultural, human rights, and political movements developed during his 47 years as president," Cuba's Periodico26 reported.

"Under his leadership the achievements in health and education became the model for other Latin American countries to aspire to, such as cutting the infant mortality rate to six in every thousand live births and a nearly 100% attendance in primary, secondary and third level education," the article said.
