Organizations For Social Justice

I pledged not to join another organization where I am not valued,  and so I became a recluse.   Today I joined Amnesty International…a baby step …. 

 

Why?  Amnesty International  is on the ground in #Ferguson.   The language of their website captured my imagination.

 

 

Wishing to become active again,  Amnesty International’s mission statement aligned with my goals.  Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR)

 

The Group Anonymous, under-rated and under-appreciated, also captured my attention.      Good and bad exist in the concept of anonymity.  My  Observations of their Actions make them the first entry on my list of Organizations For Social Justice.

 

A Message To Humanity!

A Message From The Ferguson Protesters To Anonymous

 

I just wanted to say thank you to all you Anons that helped in Ferguson. We
really couldn’t have done this without you honestly. Thank you for
protecting the protesters, and for thinking up the legislation that we’re
pushing for. You gave us a voice that no one can take away. I honestly
appreciate you guys, I may not know you, and you probably don’t know me,
but I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Today the protest was beyond awesome, the highway patrol captain even lead
it, and there were no problems. If it weren’t for you guys, the police
probably would have gassed the protesters again tonight, but because of
y’all they didn’t. The county cops were nowhere to be found, only highway
patrol and city cops, who are pretty cool. On top of getting our voices out
there in Ferguson, you have all helped to spread the word to where this is
an International protest now. We have so much support, and we know that we
aren’t alone because of you guys. Thank you for giving us our voices back,
and thank you for supporting us and helping us. You guys are honestly,
amazing, even if I don’t know who you are. I hope that you continue to help
and support us until the legislation giving cops a strict protocol to
follow when dealing with situations and the treatment has passed.
Thank you for giving us the start of our revolution and making it known
that we can and will make a difference.
