When Did Torture Become Part of the American Way?

Dec 4, 2008

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.


ZP Heller is the editorial director of Brave New Films. He has written for The American Prospect, AlterNet, The Philadelphia Inquirer, and The Huffington Post, covering everything from politics to pop culture.
