Pete Seeger for Nobel Peace Prize

A noble cause.


Clearwater founder, Pete Seeger has been an ambassador for Peace and Social Justice over the course of his lifetime. As an artist and activist, his music and performance have worked to engage people in causes to end the Vietnam War, ban nuclear weapons, work for international solidarity and environmental responsibility.

Clearwater is joining the Committee to Nominate Pete Seeger for the Nobel Peace Prize to urge the American Friends Service Committee select Pete Seeger as their nominee for the 2008 Nobel Peace Prize.

We believe this nomination is important on merit of its three basic premises: that Pete’s lifelong integrity
provides a model for other people, that the unique grassroots process promotes a democratic approach to the
nomination, and that cultural work and cultural workers receive the respect they deserve in our society, that it is not only a medium of entertainment but of education, compassion and action.
