    Boycott Amnesty.


    Peter Benenson, the founder of Amnesty boycotted the group he founded because Amnesty abdicated it's duty to protect all human life.

    Jumbotrons, uniform posters and balloons don't come cheap. There's videos of Ronan Mullah, Caroline Simons etc begging for the yankee dollar to fund them.
