Amnesty International

Biography

Amnesty International is an international human rights non-governmental organisation with over three million members and supporters around the world. Founded in London in 1961, Amnesty draws attention to human-rights abuses and campaigns, works to mobilise public opinion and put pressure on the governments that let abuse take place, and aims to protect people wherever justice, fairness, freedom and truth are denied. The organisation was awarded the 1977 Nobel Peace Prize for its campaign against torture, and the United Nations Prize in the Field of Human Rights in 1978. www.amnesty.org.uk
