Tour’. Inspired by Eleanor Roosevelt’s call for ‘concerted citizen action’ in her famous “small places” speech in 1958,
musicians and fans will raise their voices in song and action in venues, cities, towns, communities, neighborhoods
and workplaces. Through hundreds of concerts held around the world, we will draw attention to urgent human rights
concerns, recruit thousands of new human rights activists and, hopefully, raise much needed funds for Amnesty
campaigns. Amnesty’s 2008 priority campaigns include working to stop violence against women, stopping torture,
ending the killing in Darfur, controlling small arms, demanding the closure of Guantánamo, challenging China’s
human rights record including its actions in Tibet and working for the release of Aung San Suu Kyi and other
political prisoners in Burma.

and phrases to draw attention to this human right’s movement.
