I Support Amnesty Because… They Stand Up For Those That Have Been Forgotten

Amnesty campaigns on individuals and communities that are often away from the glare of media publicity. They campaign for prisoners of conscience and human rights defenders who aren’t known by most people. They campaign for Justine Bihamba of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and other human rights defenders there who are harassed for their work. They shine a light into places and people others seem to have forgotten about – for example yesterday’s report on harassment of former political prisoners in Tunisia. So I support Amnesty because they stand up for those that have been forgotten.
