RIHLA #29 - Investigate AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL's website
and write a full page summary that explains what the organization is and includes information on ONE article from the website (there are MANY options to choose from depending on where you search). How do your findings relate to Human Rights? What is your reaction? Explain fully.
The Amnesty International's website is a group that has many followers all around the world. They help to fight injustice and they promote the human right. They make sure that people receive all their human rights and that they are able to fight for them. This group has had many victories as well issues that haven't been overcome. The Amnesty Internationals group also has 4 priority campaigns: Demand Dignity, Individuals at Risk, Security with Human Rights, and Abolish the Death Penalty. These groups have to deal with the major human rights not being used and fought for it to stop. The group also monitors the human rights in more than 150 countires all over the world. Amnesty gets a lot of cases to deal with, but not all of them can be done. They try to always to take care of more of the severe cases first. In one article that I read it was called Prisoners and People at risk. It was about people being violated or under the threat of violation. Many of the actions that were done by Amnesty supporters brought justice to many individuals. They were freed from prison,saved from torture, and protected from death threats. Many issues relate to this article and justice still has to be served for these people. My findings relate to Human Rights because in this case people are tortured mistreated, and not given freedom. If they are not guilty and they have acted well in prison then they should be given freedom. But it also always depends on the case. I am glad that I have learned about this group and hope to keep reading articles in it and try to help out.
