Careful now. Placards are becoming extinct in Russia as authorities look to make attending street protests illegal.

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.

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.

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.
