Nobel Peace Prize, 1980

Author :  GERM

Adolfo Pérez Esquivel (Pérez Esquivel) (born November 26, 1931), from Argentina, was the recipient of the 1980 Nobel Peace Prize. He is noted for leading protests against the Free Trade Area of the Americas and for alleging that the Argentinan police are forming children into paramilitary squads, an operation he compares to the creation of World War II's Hitler Youth.
