"Amnesty International is digging into injustice in the world such as suppression of minorities because of race, religion or sexual preferences, denial of fair trials, denial of basic human rights, death penalty, abuse of power etc One of the things many volunteer of amnesty international do is to write letters to governments that for example detained people without giving them a fair trial. Just by the (hopefully) huge number of letters those governments and embassies suddenly receive those unjust governments become aware that their actions are not unnoticed. I once read a letter from some political prisoner somewhere in the world that had been in prison for many years. This man had given up on any hope for a long time until he heard that amnesty international made his case global. He wrote that in this moment (it still took some time to free him) he found his strength to live again. The thought of tonnes of letters arriving at the government every week all asking for giving him a fair trial gave him his hope back. What I like about it is that it's a peaceful action (you just write letters) but it has proven very successful for many many times."April 2 2012 on Join AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL and follow their campaigns by writing...

"@maarten: sorry, didn't see that your was ecological. @sara: ok, now it's getting really complicated. Probably first choice should be not to use any detergent and second to use ecological ones. Besides anything in large doses does harm, doesn't it? Generally I would assume that companies such as Albert Hijn have less interest in sustainability than Ecover, the one Bart suggested."March 16 2012 on Live during one month without producing any garbage.
"...just because it's in the picture: Using dishwasher is most of the time not necessary because of it's atomic structure plane cold water is such a great solvent in itself. However, if dishes are oily and even warm water wont help please use bio degradable dishwasher. The Albert Hijn stuff you were holding in you hands seems far away from that.;-)"March 13 2012 on Live during one month without producing any garbage.
