Act! Act Now

I'm not a great one for e-mail campaigns and joining in protests, probably mostly because I'm just not a "joining" sort of person, but I found that this horrific story just demands action.

It is of a woman falsely imprisoned and raped for four months in Venezuala, by a politically well-connected man. He got off - although that verdict is being appealed - and she faces an investigation for prostitution.

Warning: there are disturbing pictures on this story, but read it anyway, and take the action it suggests.
