"It is better to light a candle than to curse the darkness" - Peter Benson, founder of Amnesty International

Amnesty International is a global movement which campaigns to protect human rights all over the world. We are a group of individuals seeking justice on behalf of those to whom it is denied, speak up for those who are silenced, and support those who fighting for their human rights. In Manchester this means campaigning, we do letter writings, creative campaigns, demonstrations and anything we can think of to get information out there about human rights violations and show that we will not stand for it. We also fundraise for Amnesty international, supporting them in their vital research, and host film nights and discussion groups. 

We are ordinary people standing up for humanity and human rights.
