What does Nelson Mandela mean to you? Post your thoughts and read other people's here: http://www.mandelamemorial.com/ It's impossible to imagine a world without Mandela. His death will leave a massive hole, not just in South Africa but around the world. He was a truly global leader who repeatedly rejected every injustice in the cause of human rights. He simply refused to accept injustice -- and his courage helped change our entire world. Mandela's life of political struggle and self-sacrifice became and remains an example to millions around the globe. In November 2006, Amnesty International declared Nelson Mandela an 'Ambassador of Conscience' in recognition of his work over many years of speaking out against human rights abuses not just in South Africa but around the world. Accepting...

The pair was faced with a string of charges including, "attempting to overthrow the ruling system by force", after they called for a teachers' strike...

The trending topic “Amnesty Don” has been floating around the internet, especially Twitter, for a little while now as of Friday, September 15th 2017. It all began after news broke of Trump closing a deal with Democrats such as Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer as it relates to DACA and the wall at the southern border. Popular conservative personalities Ann Coulter and Mike Cernovich were speaking in very harsh language against Donald Trump because of this. Coulter was talking about impeaching Trump and Cernovich came with a flurry of negative tweets based on the premise that no wall was coming and that amnesty was instead. Much of it seemed too early due to there being no official announcement one way or another from the White House, let alone Donald Trump himself. As a little bit of tim...
