@arabian friend,
Yes. Freedom.

Tawakel Karman (Arabic: توكل كرمان‎ also known as Tawakul,[1] "Tawakkul"[3] is a Yemeni politician who is a senior member of Al-Islah[2] and a human rights activist who heads the group Women Journalists Without Chains that she created in 2005.[1] She, along with Ellen Johnson Sirleaf and Leymah Gbowee, were awarded the 2011 Nobel Peace Prize "for their non-violent struggle for the safety of women and for women's rights to full participation in peace-building work".[3]

Women Journalists Without Chains
Tawakul Karman created the human rights group Women Journalists Without Chains (WJWC) in 2005 for promoting human rights, "particularly freedom of opinion and expression, and democratic rights".[1] Karman said that she has received "threats and temptations" from the authorities by telephone and letter because of her refusal to accept the Ministry of Information rejection of WJWC's application to legally create a newspaper and a radio station.[1] From 2007 to 2010, Karman regularly led demonstrations and sit-ins in Freedom Square in Sana'a in front of the Cabinet.[1]

2011 protests
During the ongoing 2011 Yemeni protests Tawakel Karman organised student rallies in Sana'a to protest against Ali Abdullah Saleh and his government. She was arrested once, amid complaints her husband did not know her whereabouts, however she was released on parole on 24 January. She then led another protest on 29 January where she called for a "day of rage" on 3 February[2] similar to that of the 2011 Egyptian revolution that were in turn inspired by the 2010–2011 Tunisian revolution. On 17 March, she was re-arrested amidst ongoing protests.[4] Her efforts in these protests were documented in an episode of Al Jazeera English's People and Power.[5]

Awards
Karman, along with Ellen Johnson Sirleaf and Leymah Gbowee, was awarded the 2011 Nobel Peace Prize "for their non-violent struggle for the safety of women and for women’s rights to full participation in peace-building work".[3] At 32, she is one of the youngest winners of a Nobel Peace Prize.[6]

@ossobuco,
It's good news, I wonder if the South African Government will ban them from Archbishop Desmond Tutu's birthday party like they did fellow Nobel laureate the Dalai Llama.
