  5. 5. WHERE WE STAND WITH GOVERNMENT <ul><li>AI is independent of any government, political ideology, economic interest or religion. It does not support or oppose any government or political system, nor does it support or oppose the views of the victims whose rights it seeks to protect. It is concerned solely with the impartial protection of human rights. </li></ul>
  6. 6. <ul><li>In pursuit of this vision, AI’s mission is to undertake research and action focused on preventing and ending grave abuses of the rights to physical and mental integrity, freedom of conscience and expression, and freedom from discrimination, within the context of its work to promote all human rights. </li></ul>
  7. 7. WHO SUPPORTS AI <ul><li>AI has a varied network of members and supporters around the world. At the latest count, there were more than 2.2 million members, supporters and subscribers in over 150 countries and territories in every region of the world. Although they come from many different backgrounds and have widely different political and religious beliefs, they are united by a determination to work for a world where everyone enjoys human rights. </li></ul>
  8. 8. YOU CAN MAKE THE DIFFERENCE <ul><li>When you join Amnesty International, you become part of a worldwide movement. As an individual member, or as part of a local group or a specialist network, your individual voice will join with countless others to build pressure for change. </li></ul>

  11. 11. THE DEATH PENALTY <ul><li>The death penalty is the ultimate cruel, inhuman and degrading punishment. It violates the right to life. It is irrevocable and can be inflicted on the innocent and has never been shown to deter crime more effectively than other punishments . </li></ul>

  14. 14. STOP SECRET CIA DETENTIONS <ul><li>In the most comprehensive list to date, six leading human rights organizations have published the names of at least 39 men, who are believed to have been held in secret US custody and who are still missing. </li></ul>
