People who are far more deserving of the Nobel Peace Prize #1

Gonna start an ongoing feature here: People who I think are far more deserving of being awarded the Nobel Peace Prize than Barrack Obama.  People who have actually done things - practical, concrete achievements - that deserve the kind of recognition that the Nobel Peace Prize is suppose to embody.

Candidate No. 1:
Dr. Darsi Ferrer Ramírez

Cuban dissident and outspoken critic of the Castro regime.  Journalist and Medical Doctor.  Arrested in 2001 after publishing a series of scathing attacks in non-Cuban publications on the human rights abuses of the Cuban government.  Currently still in prison.
