The people of Egypt who are speaking truth to power yet again. They are standing up to the Army takeover of the country and continue to demand their rights.

Cynthia McKinney; for traveling to Lybia and calling BULLSH*T on the narrative that Khadaffi ordered the murders/rape of his own citizens.  And reporting what’s REALLY going on there.

Is this a joke, or what?  I have now nominated (twice) the previous week, along witih several others,and nothing happened.  Yet there are always plenty to nominate.  Shall I try again:

The Gaza Flotilla and/or Amy Goodman for the Assange/zizek interview.
