E - MAIL AMNESTY
Amnesty international are accused of offering support for Mozzam Begg a former terrorist and supporter of the Taliban ;
Therefore I sent the following e-mail to Windey at the web address here ;
Send your own e mail to Amnesty and let me know your response.
Dear Widney Brown,
In your statement on your website put up today you state ;
" Amnesty International campaigns for all internationally recognised human rights for all people – it is not about their views, their political opinions, their actions – it’s about upholding the universality of human rights: these are the inalienable rights of all human beings."
Can you therefore clarify why it is that Amnesty have never demanded the British government treat the civil, social, cultural and political rights of indigenous British people who are members of the BNP and who campaign peacefully in the democratic political process in the UK with the same respect as all other people, political parties and communities in the UK ?
Whilst the BNP and its activists have been singled out by the government on the grounds of their indigenous status and political opinions for bans on membership of the police, prison service and trades unions - Amnesty have said nothing in relation to these fundamental assaults on our rights and liberties.
Does Amnesty regard BNP members as human beings with human, civil, social and political rights or is the silence of amnesty related to the fact that we are regarded as sub-humans and therefore our rights may be removed and our community attacked, villified and denied our democratic rights ?
Seeing as your statement makes specific reference to political opinion could you affirm that the BNP are regarded as human beings and our rights of concern to Amnesty ?
I would like clarification on these fundamental issues as your response is of immense importance to the impartiality and integrity of Amnesty as a non-political and non-partisan organisation.
