AlterNet: The Mix is the Message

Take Action

Don't Compromise on Torture

Last Thursday, President Bush and members of the Senate struck a deal. They dealt away America's commitment to fundamental human rights principles. This deal is a betrayal of the America we believe in. No human rights activist can remain on the sidelines. We are days away from action in Congress on a proposal to abandon the rule of law and give the President freedom to interpret the Geneva Conventions any way he sees fit.

Call 1 800 AMNESTY or visit our site, and our operators will connect you to your official. Ask your Senators and Representative to oppose these dangerous provisions.

A War on Intelligence

Was MLK Jr. Really a Republican?

At first glance, a GOP ad stating that King was a Republican is a cheap shot that stretches political lunacy past the outer limit.
