Would you like this on your blog?

We're starting a Bloggers Against Torture blogroll alliance here

Next month is Torture Awareness Month. To help NGOs like Amnesty and Human Right First with their campaign, I've created a blogroll called Bloggers Against Torture. To add yourselves to the blogroll, all you need to do is help promote Torture Awareness Month by mentioning it on your blog. You can simply talk about it, you can use the graphic and link above, or you can grab the blogroll script from Bloggers Against Torture for some reciprocal linking goodness.

elendil,
I found your site via Mash at Dr. Strangelove, and notice you've visited my site, too. I'm still trying to find out how to make links work in my sidebar. I've gone into templates, saved, republished,cleaned my cache, etc., but I'm still not able to get it to work. I hope you don't mind if I sread word of your blog to all far and wide where I visit, even at the risk of being redundant. I have saved a lot of these same stories, have followed them for years, but you have created a spectacularly thorough and easily accessed compilation of this info!
We must fight off this pernicious evil that is infiltrating not only the US, but governments everywhere. I want to scream when someone points out to me "well, those terrorists torture and behead people, and we must fight them to protect our way of life...etc." as if that is an answer.
Thank you for shining light on these cockroaches! We may never eradicate them completely (has evil ever been eradicated completely?) but at least we can keep them from taking over the whole house! Make them hide in the shadows, scattered and starving.

Jeremiah, you are a scoundral. If you make up some graphics or buttons like that, I shall never, ever, forgive you! And I most certainly won't be linking them from the Bloggers Against Torture site ;-)

Aunty Ism,
Thank you so much, of course I wouldn't mind you spreading the word. Spread it like wild-fire!
I'm at work right now, but I'll be able to get up some more detailed help for bloggers with their template and adding the button tonight. I should have it up by 6 hours time.

How come you have a blog that dates back to 2001 (4 1/2 years) yet you have less than 10 comments most of which appear to be on this post?

Blogger elendil said...

Sokari, the blog has been updated retrospectively. For example, if someone was tortured in January 2002, I write the entry in January 2002, even if we only find out about it this year.

As for the low number of comments... there aren't very many people who frequent a blog about torture. It's not the kind of place you can hang out to chat. The large number of comments here is because of the blogger alliance.

Thank You

Muslim Unity, thank you for joining up :-) I would be happy to answer your questions by email or here. What would you like help with?

Do you have a "Bloggers for torture, but only when it is absolutely necessary" affiliate?

I could get behind that.

Hi anonymous. Strangely yes. For example, Jon Swift's blog, like President Bush, is anti-torture except when it's really really really necessary. Though I have a feeling that it's in much the same way that The General is 110% heterosexual.

But of course, that isn't our official position. If you can, in good conscience, tick "yes" to all questions in the previous link, I'd like to see you admit it. And then do your community a favour and notify the authorities of your whereabouts.

Great Idea indeed. The graphic looks solid and your site is a feature in my blog.
