His peaceful and gradual effort to achieve political change in China made Liu Xiaobo the most eligible person to received the highly-regarded Nobel Peace Prize.

The prestigious 2010 Nobel Peace Prize was awarded to imprisoned Chinese dissident Liu Xiaobo today forĀ  “his long and nonviolent struggle for fundamental human rights.” However, this award might trigger more issues as the Chinese government warned the Nobel Committee not to honor Liu.

Thorbjoern Jagland, the Norwegian Nobel Committee chairman, said that Liu Xiaobo was a symbol for the fight to protect the human rights in a country who is very powerful in the fields of economy and politics.
