“When one starts to realise that we are all interconnected within the marvel that is the Universe, although apparently ridiculously small and fragile, it is undeniable that we are, in fact, an amazing wonder. It has been said again and again, but I believe it is never too much: ‘What happens to one of us, happens to all of us’. It cannot be neglected.”
AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL is a global movement of more than 7 million people who take injustice personally. It campaigns for a world where human rights are enjoyed by all. Funded by members and anyone who wishes to join in, Amnesty International is independent of any political ideology, economic interest or religion. No government is beyond scrutiny. No situation is beyond hope.
Few would have predicted when it first started that torturers would become international outlaws. That most countries would abolish the death penalty. And seemingly untouchable dictators would be made to answer for their crimes.
Through detailed research and determined campaigning, Amnesty International helps fight abuses of human rights worldwide. It brings torturers to justice. Changes oppressive laws. And frees people jailed just for voicing their opinion.
