restaurants.

She was quoted as being ”a worthy heir of the spirit of
Björn Söderberg, showing courage and and sticking to her beliefs as
she stood up against the oppression at her workplace” in the
explanatory statement. ”This means that I no longer have any fear, I
can keep going on with the struggle. I don't know what to say. It
means a lot. It's a recognition of everything I had to go through, my
struggle and the courage I had to muster” says Warrent Lorena Estrada

procedures relating to the prize. From now on, the SAC executive
