Wondering what your signature has achieved so far this year?



Dear ,

Congratulations! Let's celebrate the human rights successes we've seen so far in 2015 that YOU stood up for and helped us achieve!

By taking action, you have made a difference in the lives of Angel Colón, Moses Akatugba and countless others. Read their stories of courage, victory and finally being reunited with their families.

Thank you! Without you, these stories would not be a reality today. 

Angel Colón spreads a message of hope and inspiration across Canada

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."

MY FIRST WEEK OF FREEDOM AFTER 10 YEARS IN A NIGERIAN JAIL

"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.

 

CELEBRATE ANOTHER 14 HUMAN RIGHTS SUCCESSES SO FAR IN 2015

From individual cases to country policy changes, you have been part of some amazing human rights successes!

Your signatures, letters, emails and phone calls have helped achieved marriage equality becoming a human right in the US and Ireland. Your voices helped campaign for Omar Khadr's release on bail in Canada and for the investigation of Jerryme Corre's torture in the Philippines. Thank you!


TAKE ACTION TODAY

FREE MAHDI ABU DHEEB, IMPRISONED IN BAHRAIN FOR DEFENDING TEACHERS’ RIGHTS
Mahdi should be in a classroom, not a prison cell. Mahdi Abu Dheeb was imprisoned in Bahrain for defending teacher's rights. Please add your voice to Amnesty International's call for the immediate and unconditional release of Mahdi Abu Dheeb.


June 26 is recognized by the United Nations as the International Day in Support of Victims of Torture. Torture survivors tell us how their lives have been permanently changed by their experience.  They carry with them the invisible scars which are forever marked on their minds and bodies. Take action to #StopTorture.
