Today Amnesty International Ireland welcomed the recalling Seanad Éireann, Ireland’s Upper House of Parliament, to discuss the unfolding tragedy in Gaza and Israel. 

Exactly one year after Chelsea Manning was convicted of leaking classified government material, Amnesty International is renewing its call on the US authorities to grant her clemency, release her immediately, and to urgently investigate the potential human rights violations exposed by the leaks. 


Amnesty International Ireland has today launched a new report, Bringing ESC Rights Home: Ireland and the Optional Protocol to the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights.
