Amnesty International founder dies

Peter Benenson, the founder of the international human rights organization Amnesty International, died Friday at age 83.

"The man who lit the fuse of the human rights revolution died this week, having refused all honours and leaving behind him a world changed by the countless protests and petitions he championed."

I am a member of Amnesty International Toronto Group 142.

Joining Amnesty International is one of the most effective things I have ever done. I have found that it is also one of the world's best, most reputable sources of information about the true political situation in any country. I invite everyone to explore the Amnesty virtual library , to join and to donate to the movement.

The positive power of words.
