Amnesty International USA is partitioning on domestic political issues such as healthcare reform and Guantanamo - this is excellent. But Amnesty (and Amnesty New Zealand) needs to expand its actions further - human rights are compromised on a grander scale than the clear and obvious imprisonment of activists or the denial of medical insurance.

The equal right to opportunity is an essential right but it is constantly violated by enormous income disparity in the United States and elsewhere (including New Zealand). It is essential to address this disparity and create a system where we all have equal opportunity. This requires a shared base income.
