Amnesty International origins

I remember years ago at Nudgee College I was looking at a chart on the wall of the Admin Centre.  The chart was an Amnesty International chart depicting a world map with markers wherever there were political prisoners that they were interested in.  All of these markers were in Western countries and none in communist ones.

Strange I thought, but none of the teachers thought so.

Quadrant have an article on the formation of Amnesty International and it's communist origins during the Spanish Civil war when Stalin was in full flight setting up useful idiots to support the communist cause.

It's a longish read but worth it.
