YOU CAN HELP EXPOSE HUMAN RIGHTS ABUSES IN MYANMAR. 

The military’s callous response has so far left thousands injured and, at the time of writing, 824 civilians dead, including dozens of children.

For months, Myanmar’s civilian population has responded to the military coup with a campaign of civil disobedience and mostly peaceful protest. Civil servants, medical staff, teachers and other workers have gone on strike, and hundreds of thousands of people have taken part in pro-democracy demonstrations across the country. In retaliation, the security forces have steadily stripped away the rights and freedoms of civilians in an effort to quell the protests.

Gatherings have been banned, curfews imposed, websites and social media platforms censored, and the internet is shut off for extended periods every night. Yangon and Mandalay, Myanmar’s two largest cities, have been under martial law since March 15.

The military has also targeted human rights defenders, activists, journalists, politicians and elected officials. They are subject to surveillance, arbitrary detention and enforced disappearances. Thousands of people have been arrested and many more are in hiding. 

You can donate today to help us protect innocent human rights defenders during this humanitarian crisis.

YOU CAN HELP HUMAN RIGHTS DEFENDERS IN NEED. WHENEVER. WHEREVER.

Amnesty International’s Global Emergency Fund is held in reserve to provide life-saving relief to those whose human rights are in danger. It serves to protect human rights defenders under attack including  peaceful protestors, journalists, lawyers, activists and those working with human rights organisations so they can continue their vital work exposing human rights abuses without fear of retribution.

The fund has operated in secret for years, but the spike in attacks on human rights defenders is putting ever-increasing pressure on reserves, and that’s why we’re sharing it with you today.

With your support we can continue this important work. We can continue to provide urgent assistance in critical situations to people courageously challenging injustice around the world. Please donate today! 

100% FUNDED BY YOU

Governments are afraid of us because we are 100% independent and unstoppable. For the people, by the people.

Amnesty doesn’t accept funding from governments or political organisations so they have zero leverage on what we do.

This financial independence means we’re free to campaign with objectivity and impartiality and to defend human rights worldwide.
