I’m more than happy to see social networks using their power for something besides their own self interest.
And though we don’t, for obvious reasons, participate in social network widgets or promotion here
I would like to encourage those of you who have an interest to use this day to promote awareness
of Darfur, or another human rights issue your readers might not be familiar with, and to promote activism there-in.
Let’s get it done people.
SAN ANTONIO, Texas —BlogCatalog.com, the fastest-growing social network for bloggers on the Internet, is partnering with Amnesty International, a worldwide movement that campaigns for internationally recognized human rights, to expand a global social awareness campaign for human rights by launching a major initiative on May 15.
The campaign, Bloggers Unite For Human Rights, asks bloggers from all over the world to post about human rights on the same day, May 15. Collectively, their posts will reach millions of people all over the world at the same time, even in those countries where freedom of expression is regularly suppressed.
“Amnesty International is thrilled to be a part of Bloggers Unite for Human Rights,” said Larry Cox, executive director of Amnesty International USA. “Bloggers Unite for Human Rights is a great way to harness the power of the Internet to fight injustice and make the world a better place.”
