The unregulated global arms trade inflicts misery worldwide. Every year thousands of people are killed, injured, raped and forced to flee their homes as a result.
We are all born free and equal in dignity and rights – yet everywhere, these rights are being denied. Stand together with some of the world’s most marginalized people to hold those in power to account, and demand dignity and justice for all.
Security with Human Rights
Governments all around the world – from Sri Lanka to Russia; from India to Saudi Arabia – use the threat of terrorism to undermine human rights, often through torturing people, holding them without charge or trial, and making them ‘disappear’.
Individuals at Risk
Amnesty’s Individuals at Risk campaign strives to protect those directly experiencing human rights abuses. Working for the rights of individuals has been at the heart of all we do since 1961.
Abolish the Death Penalty
Thousands of people around the world are waiting for governments to kill them. Amnesty International is campaigning to end these killings. Join our global campaign to end all executions - a global abolition of the death penalty.
