Fire Up London

Celebrating the 60th anniversary of our rights

Dear Friend,

Today is an important day for human rights all over the world: the 60th Anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR). Established in December 1948, it lies at the very heart of everything we do.

So today we want to share the inspiring celebrations taking place around the globe. From Iceland to Australia, people like you are getting Fired Up for human rights.

In the UK we've released the film 'You Are Powerful' to show that it's people like you who make a difference for human rights around the world. We would also like you to tell us what human rights mean to you on the anniversary of the UDHR.

Join Amnesty

Amnesty is powerful because we are ordinary people standing together. Just look at what we've achieved together this year:

· UK government announced they will implement new measures to improve protection and justice for victims of human trafficking
· Prisoners of conscience released, including Idriss Boufayed of Libya and Bu Dongwei of China
· UK government dropped plans to detain terrorist suspects for 42 days without charge

You Are Powerful, and we need your support to continue our essential work around the world.

Join Amnesty today

Yet as we celebrate our achievements, the humanitarian crisis in the Democratic Republic of Congo is a reminder of how much work lies ahead. Join us today and help make human rights – the articles laid out in the UDHR – a reality for all.

Thank you for being a part of our global movement.

Sincerely,

P.S.
Please forward this email on to as many people as possible who you think would like to see our new film or who may be interested in joining Amnesty. Thank you!
