Star Telegram | 03/10/2004 | Tutu's message of peace deserves to be heard

Norwegian Nobel Committee Chairman Egil Aarvik clearly captured the situation in South Africa at the time in the opening lines of his presentation speech in 1984.

"The Norwegian Nobel Committee wishes, through the presentation of this year's Nobel Peace Prize, to direct attention to a unifying leader figure in the campaign to solve South Africa's apartheid problem by peaceful means," Aarvik said."The situation as it is today is such that a peaceful solution is by no means inevitable -- the repression is so brutal that a violent rebellion would be an understandable reaction.The South African has more reason now than ever before to exclaim, 'Cry the beloved country.' "
Of Tutu, Aarvik said, "The contribution he has made, and is still making, represents a hope for the future, for the country's white minority as well as the black majority.

IPPNW: International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War

Awarding the prize on 10 December 1985, Egil Aarvik, chairman of the Norwegian Nobel Committee, noted that the prevention of an outbreak of nuclear war was increasingly regarded as a question of life or death for the human race.

...
But despite his assessment of IPPNW's contribution to the cause, in the depths of the Cold War in 1985, Aarvik was very discouraging about the likelihood of any reductions in nuclear arsenals. He pointed out that "innumerable" disarmament conferences had produced little results. "Possibly," he told the audience, "all we can hope for now is a stronger mobilization of public opinion, and a corresponding strengthening of pressure on the political authorities."
