AiCandle – Amnesty International’s iPhone application
In the early 1960s, Amnesty International started one of the first social networks of activists around the world. Today as then, human rights activists use their communications tools to effect change where they can not be present in person – from writing letters to using their iPhones.

Really poor for such a worthwhile app
I have the PETA app and really amnesty need too look at it and see how effective and easy to use it is! They let you register and e mail alerts etc. This won't even let me register and has no news feed! EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTED - please sort it out
Very happy to have an easy way to sign petitions etc
Very informative clean n easy to use
