British MPs nominate Esperanto's world-wide association for the 2008 Nobel Peace Prize

British MPs nominate Esperanto's world-wide association for the 2008 Nobel Peace Prize
Thanks to the activity of Esperanto-Lobby activists, who have used the United Nations' International Year of Languages to promote Esperanto, five British MP's have nominated the language's world-wide association, UEA (the Universal Esperanto Association), for the 2008 Nobel Peace Prize. They are Brian Iddon MP, Roger Gale MP, Austin Mitchell MP, Mike Hancock MP and Oliver Heald MP.
Two further MPs have submitted nominations: Rob Marris MP and Lord (Robin) Teverson.

The nomination they submitted reads:

The International Language Esperanto is regular and relatively easy to learn, is currently in use by a worldwide community and is employed in world travel, correspondence, cultural exchange, conventions, literature, language instruction, radio broadcasting, and on the internet.
Esperanto already serves as a common auxiliary language, fostering effective and fair international communication.

The Universala Esperanto-Asocio (UEA) supports linguistic diversity, democracy, human emancipation, and a global culture for peace.

Because Esperanto contributes to, education for international understanding, and because understanding is essential for peace, I wish to nominate the Universala Esperanto-Asocio for the Nobel Peace Prize 2008.

The following short videos on youtube (in English) and google (in Esperanto with English subtitles) give some background information on the language Esperanto and its role in international communication.
