Answer: a candle surrounded by barbed wire.

I'm proud to be a member. Their emails can be shocking, but they send updates for victories won, prisoners freed; they accomplish a lot, it's not all "doom & gloom". They have online petitions where you don't have to spend a cent. If you're curious, search your country's Amnesty International website. Applause

Great,...yet much more could be done to curb the military arrogant evil intelligence... without the military this world would be a more just and a better place...The Pacifists all over the world should get the financial strength over the military, and then the real change could be affected... as long as we have so many cowards who are afraid of the military bullying, and forcing everyone to join the military... the world remains a depressing addict hole, and the military the most notorious liars on this beautiful planet that military "science"/evil intelligence has demeaned, put down, neglected, polluted,etc....

The logo of Amnesty International is made up of two pictures. The candle is a symbol of hope, for all prisoners and victims that are denied basic human rights. The candle is barred from fulfillment by the barbed wire, and means that it is up to them to remove that barb wire and to help others.

I love the beautiful planet called Earth, but I do not like the liars who ravage it and those who support the liars abusing the word God in the process. We all will leave this planet, but at different times... Ha, ha, ha....
