Edward Snowden has claimed that the NSA and GCHQ have directly spied on Amnesty and Human Rights Watch.
This raises the very real possibility that our confidential communications have been intercepted. If shared with other governments, that could put human rights defenders in real danger.

'Anti-balaka' fighters, like this man, are very clear about what they will do to Muslims who haven't yet fled the Central African Republic. Hundreds of thousands have fled their homes this year.
It's an ethnic cleansing. More UN peacekeepers are needed, right now. Sign our petition: http://amn.st/1hxrJgA

Amnesty, is it really a good idea to go along with referring to murder as "cleansing" ?

Bad hair day? In North Korea this would probably land you and three generations of your family imprisoned in a labour camp.
Get the full facts on the world's most secretive state here:  http://amn.st/1ipxDVH
In recent months it has been reported that Kim Jong-un’s grip over the North Korean people extends to every aspect of day-to-day life – even the way they are allowed to wear their hair.

Defending human rights or looking after 'commercial considerations'?
Here are the damning documents that confirm how much the UK Government intervened in key human rights cases on behalf of Shell and Rio Tinto: http://amn.st/1gCFryC

Ordinary people from around the world standing up for human rights.
Introduction
We're ordinary people, from around the world, standing up for human rights. End of.

Want the longer version? Amnesty is a movement of people, all standing up for fairness and human rights. Wherever human rights are being abused and ignored, by whoever, we'll be making a stand.

We're the UK arm of Amnesty International, add us to your circles to keep up-to-date with the campaigns we're working on what you can do to help  us hold dictators, governments and corporations to account for their human rights abuses.
