Amnesty International is a worldwide movement of people campaigning to protect human rights. We have a vision of a world in which every person enjoys all of the rights stated in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and other international human rights standards. When those human rights are violated, we: Search out the facts Expose what is happening Mobilise people to put pressure on governments and others to stop the violations. Around the world we protect people and communities who come under attack, encourage governments and others to respect human rights and raise awareness of the international standards that protect us all. Amnesty International in the ACT and Southern NSW aims to harness the skills, energy and passion of people in our region to work together in defending and protecting human rights.
