Millions of people around the world are being deprived of their human rights. They are being discriminated against, wrongfully imprisoned, tortured or killed. They are being prevented from informing and expressing themselves, from meeting freely, or from practicing their beliefs. They are being deprived of food and water, healthcare, education, work or homes. This injustice must stop! The rights of each and every human being should be respected and protected.
Amnesty International is a worldwide movement that aims to liberate people from injustice. We have more than 7 million members and supporters in over 150 countries and territories. Our vision is for every person on earth to enjoy all the human rights enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and other international human rights standards.
Amnesty International Hong Kong (AIHK) was established in 1982. Apart from focusing on global campaigns, we pay attention to the local human rights situation and conduct human rights education within the community. In order to maintain independence and objectivity, AIHK does not receive donations from governments, corporations or political organizations.
