Amnesty International Report 2007

All across the world governments are waging war against their own populations. It is an undeclared war, but probably the longest-lasting conflict in history - in which the rich make war on the poor, and the powerful make war on the weak. Amnesty International is one of the few organisations attempting to document human rights abuses across the world, and its annual report makes chilling reading - the understated tone of the report adding weight to what is essentially an indictment of our rulers.
