Episode Description:

April 14th, the Amnesty International group from the Watershed School of Rockland, Maine presented a program about censorship. Local authors and others read excerpts from many writers and poets from around the world. These people were imprisoned or threatened with prison just for writing about their conscience. Many were even tortured. You will hear translations of work from Iran, Africa, Mexico and China. If you listen carefully, none of the works are blasphemous or seditious. such works only speak truths and are only a threat to tyrants.

The students of the Watershed School organized the entire presentation. They are living proof that our young people do possess and practice compassion. Compassion is one of the school's stated goals. Watershed is neither a private, public or charter school. It is a community school funded by the parents of the local community. I have attended many presentations in the past five years. I was impressed. This is definitely worth watching.
