  •  I got an Amnesty Int'l appeal signed "Joan Baez" (2+ / 0-)

    … just the other day.

    I [Joan Baez] have been involved with Amnesty since the founding of its US chapter, and I have had the pleasure and gratification of seeing the thousands of people freed from unjust imprisonment, torture and execution, and the death penalty as a result of its efforts.

    Amnesty's mission is urgent. The epic uprisings in the Middle East and North Africa have put Amnesty's global membership on high alert, and to the test.

    In Egypt, Bahrain, Syria, Yemen and Libya, state security forces have answered peaceful calls for reform with horrific violence. Protesters have been killed on the streets and thousands have been arrested or beaten.
