Amnesty International Day

Today is Amnesty International Day, so what is Amnesty International you are asking? I mean most of us have heard of it, but have we really stopped to look up what it means. According to Amnesty International’s website, they, “help to fight the abuses of human rights world-wide, bring torturers to justice, change oppressive laws, and free people jailed just for voicing their opinions”. Quite literally they are out there looking out for the people, a guardian of sorts, allowing the truth to be told, however challenging it might be to hear it. Click here for a list of countries they are involved with, and if you scroll to the bottom you can find a downloadable report, documenting the state of human rights in 2016.
