Pinter gave his Nobel Prize acceptance speech with effort, from a wheelchair. He condemns war and the lies of Bush and Blair. The speech caused a sensation on the internet and was suppressed by the mainstream media. The video is posted on nobelprize.org
When Harold Pinter won the 2005 Nobel Prize in Literature, he used his acceptance speech on December 7 to launch a blistering attack on George Bush and the British government, and a challenge to the conscience of people to not stand by in the face of Bush's crimes.

Harold Pinter was born in October 1930 in East London. He is a playwright, director, actor, poet and political activist. He has written twenty-nine plays including The Birthday Party, The Caretaker, The Homecoming, and Betrayal, and twenty-one screenplays including The French Lieutenant's Woman and The Handmaid's Tale, a chilling expose of what life would be like for women under a Christian fascist regime in America.

Pinter's interest in politics is a very public one. His biographer Michael Billington said: "Pinter remains, to his credit, a permanent public nuisance, a questioner of accepted truths, both in life and art." Pinter is an outspoken endorser of the call The World Can't Wait, Drive Out the Bush Regime.
