Though many places in the world seem to enjoy peaceful
prosperity, there are unfortunately still human rights violations that
occur on a daily basis. While it’s impossible to prosecute every
incident, there is an organization dedicated to making the
international public more aware of such injustices in the hope of
stopping future offenses. Amnesty International was established to
help the thousands of people worldwide who are incarcerated,
tortured, terrorized or brutalized because of their political beliefs. It
began with a group of former political prisoners in 1961 and has
now grown to a membership of more than 1 million in over a
hundred different countries.
Amnesty International’s strength lies with its members. Once a
political injustice is discovered, members write letters to their own
countries and notify the media about the incident. This puts pressure
on governments by highlighting inhumane treatment of citizens and
can ultimately lead to changes in government policies or even
human lives being saved.
The work of Amnesty International is highly respected
throughout the world and earned them the Nobel Peace Prize in
1977. Because they are not affiliated with any particular religion or
political views, their objective research is often called upon to aid
other international organizations such as the United Nations. Though
their headquarters are in London, they have more than seven
thousand offices internationally and uncover incidents from every
corner of the globe. Mexico, Australia, Iraq, China and the US,
among many others, have come under security for human rights
violations. With Amnesty International, concerned citizens all over
the world can work together and engender fairness in places where it
is most needed.
