Amnesty International Aotearoa New Zealand. Would this be a politically partisan group or what? Here are the nominees for Amnesty’s Annual Human Rights Defender Award-
Fijian human rights lawyer Imrana Jalal; Contemporary artist Shahriar Asdollah-Zadeh; Singapore opposition leader Chee Soon Juan; New Zealand civil liberties lawyer Tony Ellis; No Right Turn blogger Idiot/Savant; Defence lawyer for the ‘Waihopai three’ Michael Knowles; Maire Leadbetter of the Indonesian Human Rights Committee; TVNZ’s Sunday correspondent Janet McIntyre; Burmese activist and refugee Naing Ko Ko; NZ peace and disarmament campaigner Alyn Ware; West Papuan activist Yan Christian Warinussy and AIANZ local activists Dolores Flynn-Edge and Elena Wrelton.
Defence lawyer for the ‘Waihopai three’ Michael Knowles…??? Good grief…!! Those treasonist bastards should have got twenty years minimum. And what does sabotaging our defenses and advocating (to our enemies) the existence of a fifth column do for human rights anyway? What a pathetic farce.
