Desmond Tutu, Iraqi Prisons Scandal, and MoreNovember 16, 2010
Be sure to keep an eye on your mailboxes! In the coming weeks, Amnesty International members will be receiving the Winter 2010 issue of the Amnesty International magazine. Here’s a sampling of what you’ll find inside:
• Archbishop Desmond Tutu’s essay on Ubuntu—the delicate network of interdependence between humans and the rest of creation. (Read a sneak peak here)
• An interview with newly-appointed Amnesty International Secretary General Salil Shetty about his lifelong dedication to activism, the legacy of Amnesty International on its 50th anniversary, and what lies ahead for the world’s largest grassroots human rights organization.
• An analysis of U.S. transfers of detainees to local Iraqi prisons known to be plagued by torture, political score settling and extortion, by Tom Parker.
You’ll also find our special annual year in review that celebrates Amnesty’s achievements and victories in 2010, a glimpse of our human rights milestones of the past half-century, and updates on all of the campaign work that you make happen with your membership and activism.
