Amnesty International is an impartial worlwide group which campaigns for human rights in accordance with the UN charters. It campaigns for the release of those imprisoned solely because of their race, gender, or for the non-violent expression of their beliefs. It also opposes torture and the death penalty in all cases, and works for the right of political refugees to
seek asylum in all countries.
AUTINET FORUM is a free, open, unmoderated electronic list discussing all aspects of Autism and developmental disorders, but especially High-Function Autism (HFA) and Asperger's Syndrome (AS), and has been running since March 1996. Its aim is to be a point of unity between Autistic/Asperger people, their parents, friends and helpers, and neurologists, psychiatrists, psychologists (both clinicians and researchers) and educationalists in the field.
Hosted on Ireland On-line and with 484 subscribers in (at least) 23 countries, AUTINET FORUM is open to new subscribers from Ireland or anywhere else. You may subscribe through:

Our mailbox is read every day of the year by a group of trained volunteers - all using the pseudonym "Jo". Callers are offered absolute confidentiality and do not lose the right to make their own decisions (including the decision to end their own lives). Your messages (and our replies) will be kept for 30 days at most. You may ask for earlier deletion of a message.
