United Nations and Human Rights
A global movement with more than 3 million supporters, members and activists in 150 countries.
Their objective is to conduct research and generate action to prevent and end grave abuses of Human Rights, and to demand justice for those whose rights have been violated.
Amnesty International along with other Human Rights Organisations maintain websites that document violations and call for action as public support and knowledge of such abuses is important to the success of upholding Human Rights.
