- You’ve heard of Amnesty International, right? We believe people should be treated like people. It's amazing how often they aren't.
Women are raped as a weapon of war. People are victimised by their own governments. Innocent citizens are locked up for their beliefs.
We believe in the power of ordinary people to achieve extraordinary things. There are over 2 million of us worldwide standing up for humanity and human rights.
This is our space where we share the things that matter to us. Take a look around...

Pregnancy is not a disease, yet it kills one woman every minute. Almost all of these deaths are preventable and 95% of them occur in developing countries. Poverty, violence and a lack of education all contribute.
It doesn't have to be this way.
That's why we're asking the next UK Government to make every day Mother's Day and ensure that every pregnancy is wanted, every birth safe and every child healthy.
We need your help to achieve this. Upload a photo, or send an email, it's vital that we all do what we can to stop millions of women dying each year.

Today is Human Rights Day and to celebrate Portishead are releasing a brand new track "Chase the Tear" for Amnesty International.
We are thrilled that Portishead have chosen to work with us and have delivered this great track. Amnesty is already lucky to have the support of some incredible artists in all fields and now Portishead’s involvement is launching us into a new area of work with musical artists.
The track will be available as an exclusive download single from 7 digital (http://www.7digital.com/portisheadam..., with all proceeds going towards Amnesty’s human rights work.

One third of all recorded cluster bomb casualties are children. Yet despite efforts to ban these indiscriminate weapons, 138 banks and other financial institutions continue to invest over US$20 billion in companies that produce them.
Cluster bombs are large explosive weapons that scatter dozens or hundreds of smaller submunitions over a wide area. They cannot distinguish between military targets and civilians. Many submunitions fail to detonate on impact and, like landmines, continue to kill and maim people long after the conflict has ended.
A recent report* finds that UK high street banks are lending or providing investment banking services to cluster bomb producers to the tune of:
– Barclays: US$274 million
– HSBC: US$657 million
– Royal Bank of Scotland (includes NatWest): US$64 million
That could be YOUR cash. And if there’s one thing banks can’t do without, it’s customers: tell your bank to stop this shameful practice once and for all. If you’re not a customer of these banks you can still contact them to let them know that you find their investment in producers of cluster bombs totally unacceptable.
