Citizen Action... in Action

A Yemeni journalist - jailed for "insulting the President" - has been freed after worldwide citizen action.

Yep, CITIZEN action. No government sanctions, no government programs...


To quote from the article quoted at Jawa, regarding human rights, "citizens are taking matters into their own hands without waiting for governments to act."

As long as citizens are protecting human rights, (and not, say... honor killing...), HALLELUJAH!!!

The more we do oursleves, and the less we rely on government to do, the better-off we'll be... so never stop trying! To paraphrase a well-known saying, we can't all do everything, but each of us can do something.
