Last year, Amnesty activists from 143 countries, including Australia, stood together for freedom, equality and justice. We picked up our pens, wrote letters and stood together for human rights.We and others like us from almost every corner of the globe wrote 2,373,422 actions.
In 2014 we need your help for six cases. These six cases have been chosen because it is highly likely that a global push right now will positively influence decision-makers.
