Amnesty Human Rights Action Centre
London EC2A 3EA
We are ordinary people from across the world standing up for humanity and human rights. Our purpose is to protect individuals wherever justice, fairness, freedom and truth are denied.
Historically our campaigning has focused on prisoners, but we have responded to the changing patterns of human rights violations in the world. Today people are more likely to become victims of abuse because of who they are, rather than for what they think, say or do -- the biggest threat to human rights are the mass violations committed during armed conflicts.
