World! Please Welcome Your New Human Rights Leaders!

“The time has come for a truly global rededication to the principle of justice for all.”

Jimmy Carter
The Carter Center
After successfully campaigning against the United States in the urging quick adoption of the new UN Human Rights Council.

The resurrected UN Human Rights Council will select 47 nations on May 9, 2006, to police the world in human rights abuses.

Here is your chance to help select the next regimes, democracies, communist dictatorships and mullacracies that will be thrashing the US soon on its horrible record of Human Rights abuses.

Amnesty International and the United Nations have interactive lists where you can look further into the regime that will be up for the Council this week!

The description after each nation is from the Freedom House Annual Global Survey of Political Rights and Civil Liberties.
