Welcome to Amnesty International Australia - Tasmania Branch!
Amnesty International Tasmania want to encourage people to get involved defending and protecting human rights in their local area. We have thousands of supporters, activists and volunteers working to defend human rights, either within local groups, at rallies and the numerous events held throughout each month, or by volunteering at our Action Centre.

We acknowledge the traditional and original owners of this land - the Palawa People - to pay respect to those who have passed before us and to acknowledge today's Tasmanian Aboriginal community who are the custodians of this land.
