Folk News:
Long-time civil rights activist and co-founder  of the Freedom Song
Network, Eleanor Walden  has organized a petition to  urge the American
Friends Service Committee to nominate Pete Seeger for the  Nobel Peace Prize.  Here is an overview of her petition:

"Pete Seeger has been a crusader for Peace and  Social Justice over the course of his 83 year lifetime. As a prominent  musician his songs, messages and performance style have worked to engage  other people, particularly the youth, in causes to end the Vietnam war, ban  nuclear weapons, work for international solidarity, and  ecological responsibility. It is time that a cultural worker receives  the recognition that this work has great influence and global reach, that  it is not only a medium of entertainment but of education, compassion  and fraternity."
