Russian Human Rights Defender murdered

I got an email from Amnesty International about Natalia Estemirova. Apparently she was murdered last Wednesday, shot dead in a van she was thrown into.

The small group of Russians fighting for human rights in Russia, of which Natalia Estemirova was counted among, probably have a bigger fight on their hands than those of us here in America do. Amnesty International is asking all of us to demand a full investigation by Russian authorities into Estemirova's murder. She is only one among many, and she is the most recent.

Please join me in helping out this worthy cause.
