In the course of his endeavors, his life was threatened for telling the truth, for exposing NATO war crimes.

During his stay in the Rixos hotel in Tripoli,  Mahdi Nazemroaya challenged the very foundations of war propaganda, he revealed the devastation of NATO bombings.

The mainstream media operating out of the Rixos hotel in Tripoli had direct links to NATO, the Transitional Council and Rebel Forces. They were serving NATO interests in a direct way through massive media distortion.

The few independent journalists within the Rixos Media Centre committed to the truth were the object of veiled threats.

Those who say the truth are threatened. Those who lie and accept the NATO consensus, their lives will be protected. NATO special forces operating within rebel ranks will ensure their safety.

The ceremony in Mexico City was held on December 8.
