By publishing The Pentagon Papers in 1971, Ellsberg revealed the lies the U.S. government had told to justify the war against Vietnam. Ellsberg’s revelations played an important role in helping to end that war.

 

In December 2006 Ellsberg was awarded the 2006 Right Livelihood Award “for putting peace and truth first, at considerable personal risk, and dedicating his life to inspiring others to follow his example.”

 

Since the end of the Vietnam War, Ellsberg has been a lecturer, writer and activist on the dangers of the nuclear era, wrongful U.S. interventions and the urgent need for patriotic whistleblowing.
