Larry Cox, head of Amnesty International, stood silent as a guard violently assaulted a human rights activist who asked him a question at a public gathering at the Ethical Culture Society.

The activist was there to draw attention to AI's support of the Merida Initiative, aka, Plan Mexico, a military aid package that arms the Mexican army and police who are involved in the murder and arrest of activists in Oaxaca and Chiapas and the massacres in Atenco.

As the activist is dragged out forcibly, Larry Cox says, ironically, "We believe very strongly in freedom of speech."

Is this the face of modern mainstream human right activism? Shame on Amnesty International.
