Response to Bernardo de La Paz (Reply #6)

10. Thanks for posting this

I was in Amnesty in college and "Prisoner of Conscience" is a very specific term, and those given it have certain criteria they have to meet.
For example, Nelson Mandela was not a prisoner of conscience due to his involvement with terrorist activities in the 60s.
