I received this email from Amnesty International today.
It has a slide show, and the whole thing may be seen at:

I am writing to ask you to join Amnesty International's global vigil calling for an immediate and effective ceasefire to the conflict in Israel and Lebanon and to stand in solidarity with the victims and survivors on both sides. On Monday, August 7, Amnesty International members across the worldóincluding in Israel and in Lebanonówill call for an end to the violence that has claimed so many lives.
The message of this vigil is three-fold:
1) to call for a ceasefire,
2) to demand that all governments stop the supply of arms to the conflict and
3) to stand in solidarity with the victims and survivors from both sides of this conflict.
We have created a special web page to help local groups and activists organize their own vigils. On this page, you can find suggestions for where to hold your vigil, recommendations for visuals, and a suggested passage that will be read at other Amnesty vigils worldwide. You can also find and sign a petition, which will be passed out at the vigils and then sent to Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice calling for a ceasefire.
This is an important opportunity for AIUSA members to join the global effort to prevent further civilian casualties in this conflict.
Come stand with us!
