Monday Action: Saving the World One-by-one

See the Monday Action page for more details.

The thing I love about Amnesty Internationals work is that it connects you to individual cases of suffering. Often we can get so hung up on international injustices that we forget about the individuals involved. Depersonalising justice is quite dangerous, as I know from personal experience. We get caught up in the hatred of injustice so much we forget the individual people we are supposed to be expressing love for.

Amnesty have a really great website, which allows you to take actions online in minutes (or even seconds). My Monday Action challenge to everyone is to sign up to My Amnesty and take at least one, if not more, of the actions which you’re presented with. If you already have an account, just go do an action anyway.
