Amnesty International are a public funded organisation, this is what they say about themselves: “Amnesty International is a global movement of more than 7 million people who take injustice personally.  We are campaigning for a world where human rights are enjoyed by all.”

After the interview with Alice Podd, we were able to determine that those in Amnesty have different roles.  These are:

Those who facilitate their funders:-

  • Give information on their website
  • Write blogs

Those who get involved:-

  • Those who donate
  • Get involved with protests
  • Meetings – with those in Amnesty and governments
  • Lobbying against governments
  • Write blogs – about what they are doing, what information they have found, etc.
  • Write reports

Amnesty International help those (to name but a few):-

  • In countries that are under threat or being bombed
  • People who are being racially discriminated against
  • People being tortured, or wrongfully imprisoned
