In brief

    We may not know when a crisis will occur, but when it does, Amnesty International’s crisis team is ready. Whether it’s the ongoing humanitarian crisis in Syria, the jailing of peaceful activists in Malaysia, or imminent executions in the Asia Pacific, Amnesty is ready to help individuals at serious risk of human rights abuses. We gather the evidence as situations escalate and ensure our supporters and the wider community are informed and ready to act.

    What we’re asking

    We want a world where human rights are no longer under fire. Governments and people in power everywhere must respect everyone’s basic freedoms, and allow their citizens to live safely, without fear. When human rights are attacked, Amnesty will call on the human rights abusers to be tried and brought to justice.
