Today is Human Rights Day

Larry Cox, Amnesty International USA

Today, on Human Rights Day, we shine a light on Liu Xiaobo. He is being awarded the Nobel Peace Prize today for his long and non-violent struggle for fundamental human rights in China, but cannot accept this prestigious award in person because he is serving an 11-year prison sentence for proposing democratic reforms.

This Nobel Laureate should be freed, immediately and unconditionally.

Amnesty International has been
shining a light on injustice for 50 years. Liu Xiaobo's story reminds us to never let it fade. Your help couldn't come at a better time. Please join us!

Imagine what great victories we have yet to achieve together. Celebrate Human Rights Day with a gift to Amnesty International.
Dear Dwijendra,

Where will you be next Friday, December 10th? It's Human Rights Day, the day the world commemorates the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. The Declaration presents a towering vision of equality and peace and is the blueprint for all that we do at Amnesty.

Our mission is to make all of the human rights enshrined in the Declaration a reality for everyone, everywhere.

On this Human Rights Day, Amnesty will be on the ground in 150 countries, side-by-side with our 2.8 million supporters, defending freedom and humanity.

Celebrate Human Rights Day with Amnesty. Join us today.

Since 1961, we've celebrated Human Rights Day the Amnesty way – with global action. Since its founding Amnesty International has campaigned on behalf of thousands of unjustly imprisoned individuals. We fight to abolish torture and the death penalty, and work to alleviate human suffering the world over. Our work continues because we know our letters and our actions change lives.

"All of these letters and signatures were extremely important in keeping Tissa's case alive and finally bringing about his release. We urge all of you to continue your good work so that others who are wrongly held will be able to survive."
Ronnate Tissainayagam, wife of former Sri Lankan prisoner of conscience J.S. "Tissa" Tissainayagam, freed in June 2010 thanks to Amnesty members

Together we've been fighting bad guys and shining a light on injustice since 1961. Tomorrow's victories are only possible with the financial support of people like you.

Shine a light with me to the future. Join us today.

With your support, our best days are ahead.
