Amnesty International is a worldwide movement of people who campaign for internationally recognized human rights to be respected and protected for everyone.

We believe human rights abuses anywhere are the concern of people everywhere.

So, outraged by human rights abuses but inspired by hope for a better world, we work to improve people’s lives through campaigning and international solidarity.

Our mission is to conduct research and generate action to prevent and end grave abuses of human rights and to demand justice for those whose rights have been violated.

Our members and supporters exert influence on governments, political bodies, companies and intergovernmental groups.

Activists take up human rights issues by mobilizing public pressure through mass demonstrations, vigils and direct lobbying as well as online and offline campaigning.

We have more than 2.2 million members and subscribers in more than 150 countries and regions and we coordinate this support to act for justice on a wide range of issues.

  1. wow, what a short-sited generalization. i'd like to think that many of us can think for ourselves, despite the abuses of our government, there are many of us fighting for what is right.

    its stereotypes and generalizations like these that perpetuate ignorance.

  2. have you talked to any tibetans lately? funny, the ones who've escaped tibet and live in my town don't seem to feel that way!

    i guess they are all ignorant radicals spreading lies…just like the members of Falun Gong. So their voices mean nothing and the official party line is the truth? right. i don't think so.

  3. I understand what you are saying but still my entire education from childhood has been there to teach me to be a tool as opposed to actualy educate. I work at a local grocery store and I live with the knowledge that the food we sell doesnt always get produced in a manner in line with human rights. I feel that every day I try to live a normal American life I am indirectly affecting someone negatively. I too am doing my best to help but it's hard when you cant escape the system that hurts others.

  4. You make a really good point, a lot of different aspects, causes off oppression and inequality are unexamined, ignored, or not recognized as they are enacted and implemented on a day to day basis, and are supported and maintained by economic injustice. I look forward to the day when the valleys are exalted and the hills and valleys made low.

  5. @Eladas334 If there's anything to karma then I bet your gona be eating out of dumpster's one day, think long & hard on what kind of person you are to view your fellow man in such a way.

  6. 1961 – USA joins Amnesty International
    2010 – USA is still keeping prisoners in Guantanamo Bay, often without charge, where many have been tortured.

    Where are the Blessings of Liberty today?

  7. Im all for human rights an amnesty international, but when people escape from prison and there faces cannot be shown to the public for the publics own safety because it breaches there human rights or a hate preacher cannot be deported back to there home country for inciting others to do terrorist attacks on civilians because it breaches there human rights, thats when i draw the line.

  8. @ antiglbtMAN, how can you have so much hate for other humans and call yourself a human that stands up for human rights, I feel sorry for you, I also forgive you but, I can not help you with your Karma, that is something you will have to deal with when it is your time, Buddha bless.

  9. thank you. The death penalty is important. fags are very much worthless. thanks for having balls and being a real man and not a bitch that reports people for bullshit reasons

  10. were was AI when tortured was declared legal in the USA?!
    you know what I mean… Guantanamo, Bradley Manning…
    just asking???

  11. "Anti-racists" say there's a RACE problem. They say it'll be solved when non-Whites pour into ALL & ONLY White nations and "assimilate" to get a brown mixture.

    They say only White nations have this RACE problem; they say non-White nations are fine.

    If I object to my own genocide these "anti-racists" say I am a naziwhowantstokillsixmillionjews.

    They say they're anti-racist. What they are is anti-White.

    Anti-racist is a codeword for anti-White.

  12. DALIA LAMA IS A LIAR HE SAID CHINESE TRY TO POISON HIM BUT HE SAID I DON'T KNOW 100% CORRECT OR NOT DALIA LAMA CAUSE RIOTS AND EXECUTE DORJE SHUGDEN AND BAN THEM FROM GOING IN  SHOPS AND HOSPITALS THE SHOOTING OF A 17 YEAR OLD NUN WAS STAGED VIDEO  ALL LIES.
