Hundreds of Norwegians held a torch-lit march in Oslo on Sunday to criticize the selection of the European Union for this year's Nobel Peace Prize. Its member countries account for one-third of global arms exports. "It is not only the [E.U.] member states that do export weapons, and it is not only the member states facilitating the weapons industry, but it is also the E.U., on an institutional level, and that is the main reason, at least, I'm here to contradict this prize," says Hedda Langemyr, the director of the Norwegian Peace Council.
