Ben Eakin (19), one of the coordinators of the U of O Amnesty Chapter and Nadia Musidin (21), a devoted member of Amnesty are pictured here with an Amnesty poster in front of one of the penitentiary towers in Huntsville, Texas. Huntsville is home to one of the most infamous prison systems in America. The stand that Amnesty takes on the Death Penalty is one of abolition. The week before, the U of O Amnesty Chapter had screened a documentary called "Deadline", had organized a Human Rights Poetry Night, and had done a letter-writing campaign.
