Jailed for exposing 
 a toxic waste spill

How would you feel if a toxic waste spill covered the UK coastline, killing tonnes of fish and costing thousands of jobs – and the government tried to cover it up?

When it happened in Vietnam, Tran Thi Nga was angry and upset that the company responsible was not brought to justice. So she joined a movement to expose the truth. 

For this, Tran Thi Nga has been sentenced to nine years in prison – torn apart from her two young sons. She’s suffered beatings and death threats, and her health is in sharp decline.

Tran Thi Nga is not a criminal. She just wants justice. Will you help set her free by setting up a monthly gift to Amnesty International UK today?

Help us call for her release and reunite her with her family.

Yes, I will help with a gift today Donate now

What we're doing

We're mobilising thousands of our supporters globally to demand Tran Thi Nga's freedom through protests, letters, emails, petitions and tweets. This is putting pressure on Vietnam’s government. Together, we're letting them know that the world is watching. 

And every day we stand up for the hundreds of other people unjustly imprisoned across the world for speaking truth to power.

Amnesty supporters have helped free over 50,000 political prisoners. Will you join the fight against oppression?

Become part of a movement of over 7 million ordinary people from around the world standing up for human rights.

We research human rights abuses and expose them in the international media. We lobby governments and inspire people to campaign for change. Together, we've helped change hundreds of laws, secured the release of thousands of prisoners, and improved millions of lives.

Please stand with Tran Thi Nga and support Amnesty International UK with a monthly gift.
