Here's an inspiring piece of activism for those of you travelling with us on our journey to better understand the human rights situation in Eritrea: This summer Amnesty International activists in Phoenix put together an ambitious program of performance art focusing on the plight of Eritrean prisoners of conscience in conjunction with Amnesty's Denounce Torture! campaign. Very impressive! More pictures and detailed description here. I think some of our Readers will definitely want to look these folks up in a few weeks when attending the Amnesty International USA Western Regional Meeting in Tuscon.
