Happy 50th Birthday, Amnesty International!

On 28 May, Amnesty International celebrated 50 years of independent campaigning to end grave abuses of human rights. Fifty years which have seen the movement grow from its early beginnings as a small office in London, staffed by volunteers, to a truly global movement of more than 3 million supporters, members and activists.

Amnesty International’s vision is for every person to enjoy all the rights enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and other international human rights standards.
