The power of small pieces of craft - In Chile durng the dictatorship of Pinochet, women made small "arpilleras" to express their grief at the death or disappearances of their dear ones. Foreigners smuggled them out of the country. These little patchwork messages traveled the world, helped raise international awareness of the brutality of the Pinochet regime, and Amnesty International used them to help build pressure to bring down Pinochet.
