When Did Torture Become Part of the American Way?

Honoring the 60th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

Amnesty International USA just launched its Protect the Human campaign to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.  They've got a fantastic site up where you can view Amnesty's films and photos, learn about human rights issues, read up on the UDHR, tell your story using an interactive Google map, and take action on these issues.

Check out the Protect the Human campaign now, and then sign Brave New Films' open letter calling on President-elect Obama to close Gitmo and ban unconstitutional military commissions
