During his recent visit to Canada, former prisoner of conscience Angel Amílcar Colón Quevedo, shared his unforgettable story, advocated for migrants in Mexico, and testified to the Parliament's Subcommittee on International Human Rights.
Angel spoke about the impact of Amnesty supporters: “If Amnesty International had not made visible in Canada and around the world the torture and imprisonment I suffered for crimes I did not commit, I would never have escaped from that nightmare."
"When she saw me again, my mother didn't stop hugging me for 15 whole minutes." Moses Akatugba tells us about his first week of freedom after 10 years in a Nigerian jail.
On 28 May 2015, Moses Akatugba, a Nigerian death-row inmate, was pardoned. He had been tortured to confess to a crime he says he never committed. Over 800,000 activists sent letters demanding justice for Moses.
