Liner Notes:

We hope you enjoy The Secret Policeman's Third Ball.

Thank you for your support. In many countries however, that support woulld be a punishable offence. Thousands of peoples are imprisoned for such actions by goverments who subscribe to ideologies of both left and right.

These regimes are equally adept at imprisoning people simply because their political or religious beliefs are at odds with those of the state. They can even imprison people because they are the wrong colour, wrong race or speak the wrong language.

It was to assist the prisoners, to show them that they're not forgotten, that Amnesty International was started in Britain in 1961. By 1977 its achievements were marked by the Nobel prize.

But Amnesty is in no position to pretend its job is done. More prisoners of conscience are incarcerated every year. You can help them by helping us.

Please join our campaign.

Mark Knopfler
