Okay, I hate the term "human rights" because it can stand for so many random things. (Nor do I generally take Amnesty International very seriously.)
But in this case I signed up as one of the many bloggers uniting to bring voice to the voiceless. It ticks me off to know that Google & Yahoo work with the Chinese government to censor the internet and imprison people. I can't stand the fact that the Burmese (Myanmar, whatever) Junta is taking aid to help the military and not the people. I cannot fathom not being able to speak my mind - as a woman and as a person - if I lived in such an oppressive place as Iran.
I do not agree with the statement on Bloggers United about Guantanamo Bay though. That particular issue is not about 'human rights' it's about a nation being able to protect itself and imprison terrorists (so defined even by the Geneva convention...they are non-uniformed combatants). I do NOT agree that any of the detentions are "illegal" as claimed by AI.
But the crisis in Darfur is absolutely a true crisis of human rights. As well as the horrid situation in Zimbabwe.
The right to life. To liberty. Those are human rights. No government should infringe upon them.
