I am certain that the name of this group is enough to assure you that the issues you find here will not be—by their very nature—pleasant to deal with. Man’s inhumanity to man is boundless, and everywhere you look there seems to be no end to hatred, conflict, and injustice. To make matters worse, the lines between justice and injustice are often blurred as victims become the victimizers, and the oppressed—once liberated—turn into oppressors themselves.
Such is the story of man.
As decent and moral people, it is, unfortunately, our duty to stand up and speak out against injustice. I say “unfortunately” because it is not only unfortunate that these injustice occur, but unfortunate that we cannot go about the business of living our own lives without trying to right the wrongs committed by others.
These issues are complicated. Our ability to influence others is limited. And far too many things are simply out of our control. Confronting them is by no means an easy task.
Nonetheless, we can attempt to make small efforts to right the wrongs of the world through letter-writing campaigns, petitions, phone calls, and by staying informed on the issues that affect the people around us.
Please contribute as often as you can. News, action alerts, letter campaigns, books, documentaries, and links are all welcome. I have provided some links to external sites below. It is in no way a comprehensive list, but I do welcome any additions you might suggest.
