Stuttgart – The Stuttgart Peace Prize 2020 of the association “Die Anstifter” goes to the imprisoned Wikileaks founder Julian Assange . The Australian-born has been in a London prison for about a year. The award for Assange is “a sign that the right to unconditional freedom of information and the press is not only protected, but enforced,” said club chairwoman Annette Ohme-Reinicke in Stuttgart on Tuesday.

With the award, the organization honors people or projects who are particularly committed to peace, justice and solidarity. The prize, endowed with 5000 euros, is to be awarded in Stuttgart on December 6 (11:00).
