Amnesty International is a non-governmental organisation focused on human rights with over 7 million members and supporters around the world. Through Disco DUCK this Friday, we'll be supporting Amnesty International and their many campaigns. https://www.facebook.com/events/1638112076467165/
One of AI's campaigns involves the rights of refugees and migrants:
'The list of human tragedy grows day by day – people crushed by lorries, drowned on our shores and denied shelter at our borders. It is a damning charge against European leaders and their failure to provide safe routes for those fleeing war and persecution.
The latest statement by the Prime Minister offers some hope for Syrian refugees but it’s only the first step. Now, we must keep up the pressure and make sure more is done for the thousands of Syrians and others stranded in makeshift.'
