A Campaign on Facebook to Nominate “Liberation Martyrs” for the Nobel Prize
A number of Facebook activists launched an e-campaign entitled "Nominating the martyrs of Egypt’s peaceful revolution for 2011 Nobel Peace Prize”. The campaign aims at honouring the martyrs, their families and friends nationally and internationally through their nomination for the Nobel Prize as a means of moral and material support to them and their families.
The Facebook group posted images of the martyrs of January 25’s revolution and songs that mourn the martyrs. The admin of the group called for a website to be launched in all languages honouring the martyrs of the revolution, nominating them for national and international awards and documenting all the videos and pictures that have been taken of them prior to and during the revolution as well as constructing a statue commemorating the martyrs.
The admin of the group stressed that the martyrs of Egypt’s peaceful revolution have granted a better life to 85 million Egyptians, adding that their blood ignited the revolution, and contributed to the raising of all sections of the society. They stressed on the need to unify the Arab nation and collect all the data on the martyrs of Egypt’s revolution.
They emphasized that the souls of the martyrs were sacrificed for the sake of God and the nation and their reward from God is the greater than all the prizes on earth. They added that these prizes will not add anything to them after they were chosen by God as to be His martyrs and to enjoy the company of the prophets, martyrs and the righteous ones in Paradise.
