Liberland President Vit Jedlicka Honored with the Gusi Peace Prize

Manilla, Philippines, December 06, 2023 – Liberland President Vit Jedlicka has been distinguished as a Peace Prize Laureate with the Gusi Peace Prize in Manila, Philippines, a recognition reflecting his dedication to fostering peace, liberty, and the blockchain  governance of Liberland. This prestigious award, often likened to the ‘Asian Nobel Peace Prize,’ honors leaders globally who have made significant contributions to peace and human rights.

In his speech at the award ceremony, President Jedlicka spoke about the founding principles of Liberland, established on April 13th, 2015, in homage to Thomas Jefferson’s birthday. He underscored Liberland’s commitment to peaceful resolution of conflicts, neutrality, and a governance system centered on voluntary participation. “The absence of force in our governance and a justice system focused on incentives rather than punishments are key to our philosophy,” Jedlicka stated. He proudly noted the absence of significant injuries or loss of life in Liberland since its inception, a testament to the country’s peaceful ethos.

President Jedlicka expressed profound gratitude for the award, viewing it as a validation of Liberland’s efforts to build a society founded on freedom and voluntary exchange. “This award strengthens our resolve to continue striving for a world where liberty and peace prevail,” he remarked. 

The Gusi Peace Prize, established in 2002, is named after the World War II veteran and Filipino guerilla, Captain Gemeniano Javier Gusi. It symbolizes a commitment to global peace and human dignity, celebrating achievements in various fields including statesmanship, science, and humanitarianism. The annual ceremony in Manila brings together laureates from around the world, highlighting their contributions to the pursuit of peace and freedom. Past laureates include prominent figures such as President Kgalema Motlanthe of South Africa, Prime Minister Timothy Harris of St. Kitts and Nevis, and President Arnold Rüütel of Estonia, illustrating the prestige and international recognition associated with this award.

With this accolade, President Jedlicka joins an esteemed group of other 12 presidents and other distinguished recipients, further spotlighting Liberland’s approach to nation-building and its growing influence on the global stage.
