Mass Repression in Copenhagen

From news reports I have seen, there appears to be brutal repression and mass arrests of demonstrators at the UN Climate Summit in Copenhagen...Where is Amnesty International? Why hasn't the new EU President come out forcibly against the oppression? Why don't I hear Obama and Clinton condemning these attacks against free speech? Shouldn't the world have the same commitment to human rights for protestors in Europe as they do for protestors in Honduras?

I hear ya!

In the past 6 months, almost every week, I hear on the news about 100 people killed here, 37 people killed there, etc., etc. Even tear gas being used on protesters in Pennsylvania. Nothing like that has happened in Honduras, yet Honduras gets all the flack from Amnesty International and all the other groups.
