Sydney Peace Foundation – Gold Medal

Each year the Sydney Peace foundation recognises those people who promote peace and justice in Australia with their annual peace prize. Since they were formed in 1998 they have also issued gold medals to those individuals whose efforts are considered to be exceptional. The presenting of one of these gold medals is fairly rare with only Dalai Lama, Nelson Mandela, and Daisaku Ikeda having received them prior to this year.

The Foundation has announced that a fourth person – Julian Assange – is to receive a gold medal for “exceptional courage and initiative in pursuit of human rights”. Congratulations Julian.
