Current Campaigns - May 2012

This year we are working on a number of Amnesty campaigns:

Individuals at Risk

We campaign on behalf of individuals at risk of grave human rights violations: prisoners of conscience, human rights defenders, the "disappeared", unfair trials, torture.

Enforced Evictions

Every year hundreds of thousands of women, men and children are made homeless and destitute:

    forced out of their homes and off their lands

    with little notice or none at all

    often with the threat or use of violence.

Tural Abbasli – Azerbaijan

We campaign on behalf of Tural Abbasli who is considered by Amnesty to be a prisoner of conscience , detained solely for peacefully exercising his fundamental rights.

He is one of 14 people currently imprisoned in connection with anti-government protests in early 2011 and considered by Amnesty to be prisoners of conscience.

Human Rights in Colombia

Colombia’s internal armed conflict leads to serious abuses by guerrillas and paramilitaries -- including massacres, forced displacement, sexual violence and use of child soldiers -- and to violations by the military.

Death Penalty

Campaign for the abolition of the death penalty - it brutalises society and kills innocent individuals who are wrongly convicted.
