I believe that the modus operandi of Amnesty International (AI) is not to deal with "local issues."

Hence, I assume that if you want to "assist non Chinese immigrants and migrants on Taiwan" ..... you might want to contact the AI Chapters in Burundi, Croatia, Denmark, Ethiopia, Iceland, Iran, Liberia, Togo, Zambia, etc.

What are you doing about beheading in Saudi Arabia, stoning in Iran and executions in America? What are you doing about extra-judicial killings in Colombia, Turkey and the Philippines? Are you doing the usual regular Amnesty International activity of writing letters to prisoners of conscience and framed and death-row prisoners in various countries? You were working on repression in Burma - has that been forgotten now? If you go on with this focus on Tibet, which is part of China according to both ROC and PRC territorial claims, and recognised as such internationally, you risk becoming a mere political tool in ROC/PRC rivalry.

At this point in time, it cannot be confirmed that there will be a presentation by the NGO representing Almas John. No word has been received from the law firm Dewey, Cheatem & Howe.

It will be posted here if further information becomes available.
