Amnesty International does some great campaigning and human rights work around the globe and this week is Freedom Week, their annual fundraising and awareness drive.
Most people will be familiar with Amnesty’s work, especially with the spotlight they’ve helped to shine on China’s appalling human rights record in the leadup to the Olympics. What’s often forgotten is the work Amnesty does in highlighting abuses in countries that never make it to the 6 o’clock news.
But they can’t do any of this without money, and that means people like you and me donating. There are a few ways you can do this. You can donate $20 immediately by calling 0900 AMNESTY, donate online by clicking here, or you can join by clicking here.
We spend a lot of time arguing across partisan lines here at The Standard, but I think this is a cause that everyone can support.
