Welcome to the University Voices for issues concerning Amnesty International around the world.
We aim to inform, educate and broadcast as much News surrounding humanitarian issues that affect the world.
Amnesty International is a movement of ordinary people standing up for humanity and human rights across the world. Our purpose is to promote human rights wherever justice, fairness, freedom and truth are denied.
AI is a democratic, self-governing movement. Major policy decisions are taken by an International Council made up of representatives from all national sections.
One of the latest videos for the Refugee Crisis from the BBC has been added below for our readers to view.
AI’s national sections and local volunteer groups are primarily responsible for funding the movement. No funds are sought or accepted from governments for AI’s work investigating and campaigning against human rights violations.
The main agenda for 2017 for our staff members, is to highlight the need for help, support and love that is needed for our fellow humans, the Refugees of the world.
We oppose: The return of refugees to countries where they may be at risk of serious violations and abuses. Arms and security transfers (including weapons and training) to countries where these can reasonably be assumed to contribute to human rights abuses. The manufacture, use or transfer of indiscriminate weapons of warfare, particularly anti-personnel landmines.
