I support Amnesty because… they stand up for human rights not political parties

I support Amnesty because they stand up for human rights not political parties. I enjoy being part of Amnesty International because they stand up for human rights without picking political favourites. They advocate for human rights and challenge all parties to support them. With a General Election coming up in this country I believe it is important to take advantage of this strength to take our message to all candidates standing. Human rights does resonate across the political spectrum demonstrated by a lobby for an arms trade treaty I attended a few years ago where all three of the main party leaders in the UK came out in support.
