All over the world people just like you are being tortured right now. Imagine being beaten, electrocuted, having your face cut, having your fingernails pulled out.
We are in the grip of a global crisis and we need your help to stop torture and make two-faced governments stick to their promises.
My Body My Rights
The health and lives of millions of people across the globe are being threatened by government failures to guarantee their sexual and reproductive rights.
Amnesty International’s new campaign My Body My Rights is about people being empowered to enjoy their sexuality.
S.O.S. Europe is Amnesty International’s campaign for the human rights of migrants, refugees and asylum-seekers in Europe and at its borders.
We want the human rights of migrants, refugees and asylum-seekers to be respected and effectively protected in Europe and along its borders.
As human beings we are all entitled to live a life of dignity, relative to the society in which we live. By incorporating economic, social and cultural rights into Irish law as it has promised, the government would be guaranteeing people this dignity.
Its decisions must be geared towards the delivery of these rights so it is ensuring that every one of us can access, at the very least, a basic standard of living.This includes access to education, healthcare, work and income.
Do gay people have fewer human rights than heterosexual people? Of course not. And yet it's a crime to be gay in at least 78 countries today. In some, it can get you executed.
Every day LGBTI people have their human rights abused simply because of who they love. Amnesty International campaigns to end discrimination against LGBTI people in Ireland and around the world.
Every day Roma face prejudice, hatred and violence. They are forced to leave their homes, given sub-standard education and are segregated from society. This treatment is not just wrong, it is illegal.
We are calling on the EU to hold member states to account and end discrimination against the Roma.
