Mathaba News Agency was able to capture evidence of fraud and cheating by Amnesty International USA in its on-line poll for "Human Rights Hero" of 2011.
Already under intense criticism worldwide for having ignored the plight of the Libyan people who were bombed and invaded in the name of "human rights" by western powers, leading to the "Stalingrad" type blockage and destruction of entire cities, most notably Sirte, Amnesty International closed the on-line poll one month early, and changed the rules early January, after Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi took the clear lead in the poll.
Libya had become the "Switzerland of Africa" after being the poorest country in the world, after Muammar Gaddafi came to power in 1969 and handed over power to the people to a novel system of direct participatory democracy in 1977. With free education, health, housing, electricity and water, and a new charter of human rights, Libya became a beacon for "freedom fighters" the world over, seeking to emulate some of the ideals of The Green Book.
