At the start of the summer we badgered the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) to stop them from awarding a prize funded by the corrupt dictator Teodoro Obiang, President of Equatorial Guinea.  Over 600 emails were sent challenging the ethics of this prize and UNESCO postponed the award (previous blog post).  Now there is a chance to cancel this prize completely.

The United States have put forward a resolution calling for the withdrawal of this lavish prize at the executive board meeting that is happening right now.

I have two badgers ready and waiting for you at  http://apps.facebook.com/superbadger one is to the US representative, David Kellion, encouraging him to stand strong and speak out against corruption, the other to the Ghanaian representative, Naana Opoku-Agyemang,

who has spoken out historically about slavery and human rights issues, but supports this prize.
Please take action now by clicking http://apps.facebook.com/superbadger and let’s give Obiang the UNESC-heaveho for good.
