"Alternative Nobels" honor fair trade activists

Activists from Canada and Malaysia and a group representing Kalahari Bushmen received Right Livelihood Awards, also known as the alternative Nobels, during a ceremony Friday.

The winners were chosen for their work to promote justice, fair trade and cultural renewal.

The 2 million kronor (Ђ213,000; US$256,000) cash prize was shared by Canadian activists Maude Barlow and Tony Clarke, Malaysian opposition leader and rights activist Irene Fernandez and the First People of the Kalahari.

Mexican artist Francisco Toledo won the honorary prize, but was unable to attend the ceremony. His daughter accepted the prize on his behalf.

The awards were founded in 1980 by Jakob von Uexkull, a stamp dealer who sold his collection to fund a program to recognize work that he believed was ignored by the prestigious &to=http://english.pravda.ru/main/2002/05/21/29067.html' target=_blank>Nobel Prizes. There are now over 100 laureates from 48 countries.
