Stephen Lewis for the 2007 Nobel Peace prize. sign now

This is a petition asking the Nobel committee, to consider Canadian Stephen Lewis for the 2007 Nobel peace prize.



Stephen Lewis is the U.N.Secretary General's special envoy for H.I.V/ A.I.D.S. in Africa. He is working to obtain drugs for the treatment and prevention of this devastating disease and for financial assistance for those that are left to care for the children. He has visited & wept with the adults & those children that have been orphaned, by H.I.V./ A.I.D.S.He has consoled and supported the grandmothers ,that are attempting to rear those children. Stephen Lewis constantly advocates for womens rights, and the rights of sex trade workers;many of whom, are little more than children themselves.He seeks to provide condoms and cheap medications for their treatment.When parents have died, young women seek a means to earn enough money to support their siblings.The sex trade is the most lucrative way for an unskilled women to earn money.The sad result ,is that the young women also contract A.I.D.S. thereby leaving the very young without any support at all.Stephen Lewis advocates constantly with tenderness, intelligence and a saintly zeal, that is profoundly moving.Stephen Lewis needs recognition, not for himself, but for his cause. We would ask the committee to seriously consider Stephen Lewis for the 2007 Nobel Peace prize. As such, Africa would be put in the media spotlight, giving further credence to his campaign for change, in the lives of the poor and marginalised on the continent of Africa.
