Welcome to the Amnesty International PBL
Amnesty International is a global movement of people fighting injustice and promoting human rights. The ISS Amnesty PBL group is committed to raising awareness, to educating ourselves and our community and to fundraising in support of human rights causes.
Our focus this year: Women's Rights and the refugee crisis from syria to europe
Women's right have become increasingly more of an issue with the modern day state of mind. People usually have an issue with this inequality on a global scale. To raise awareness of the discrimination and abuse that women go through today. Women's rights are greatly overlooked due to the changes that have already occurred to improve this issue, yet we are still a long way from complete equality between the sexes.
Amnesty International PBSL at ISS want to raise awareness of the current events that include women's rights and to sign letters as well as raise money for our cause.
REFUGEE CRISIS (Syria to Europe)
At the moment, there has been huge increase of refugees fleeing the Syrian war to become established in other flourishing countries in Europe. They seek asylum in these countries but don't always find that they are accepted. One can see that there is no shortage of awareness for this cause at moment, but there is a lot that Amnesty International may be able to help with.
On the official Amnesty International website, lots of the posts happen to be about the issue of countries not accepting the refugees as well as many families dying on their way to these countries. Petitions, letters, fundraising, awareness and more, can all help the cause.
