I stopped contributing to AI USA. The calls and mail solicitations were EPIDEMIC. Three years later I still receive occasional solicitations. (Worse than the 1960s Catholic Church's harassment for funds!!!!) Steer clear of them.

Amnesy Itl is a joke. I'm trying to find an organization that supports the Syrian people who are suffering horrible human rights abuses under their own government. I went to Amnesty's website, and there is nothing on it about Syria -- not listed under campaigns or on the home page. Instead, they have a press release about a student in Ukraine whose rights were violated. Their mission statement says they are focused on addressing grave human rights violations. If a government slaughtering its own people in protest isn't human righs violation, what is?
