Amnesty: Arab freedom struggle 'on knife edge'
13-May-2011 (2 comments)

A fightback by repressive governments is putting at risk a historic struggle for freedom and justice in the Arab world, Amnesty International says.

Publishing its annual report, the rights group highlights the fight for control over communications technology.

It criticises Libya, Syria, Bahrain and Yemen for targeting peaceful protesters to stay in power.

And it says repressive regimes in China, Iran and Azerbaijan have tried to pre-empt uprisings.

The campaign group released its report on human rights around the world following months of mass demonstrations in the Middle East and North Africa.

Gozar: [after Ray orders her to re-locate] Are you a God? 

 Dr Ray: No. 

Gozar: Then... DIE! 
[Lightning flies from her fingers, driving the Ghostbusters to the edge of the roof and almost off; people below scream

 Winston: Ray, when someone asks you if you're a god, you say "YES"!
