Justice is always worth fighting for and when we stand together no situation is beyond hope. 

Here are just a few examples of what we achieved together in 2021 right here in Australia:

You kept women and girls safe by demanding that our leaders take action to fulfil their obligations under the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women –and they responded by announcing $26.2 million to create a safe space online for women and children.

You upheld the right to protest. When the Tasmanian Government proposed legislation to restrict the right to protest – you helped to launch a snap campaign to defeat the Bill. Now no protestor will face 21 years in prison for simply exercising their right to peaceful expression and assembly.

You kept kids out of prison. A proposed youth curfew in Alice Springs will not go ahead after Amnesty International Australia argued that a curfew on children and young people will only entrench cycles of disadvantage, poverty, poor health and racism.

You ended LGBTQIA+ conversion practices. Over 35,000 Amnesty supporters took action calling for legislation to ban these practices in Victoria. Hundreds reached out directly to Members of the Legislative Council, calling on them to support the Bill. Thanks to your advocacy, LGBTQIA+ Victorians are now protected from harmful conversion practices.

KEEP CHALLENGING INJUSTICES WHEREVER THEY HAPPEN

In 2022, let’s work together to amplify our impact. With our influence, and your commitment, we’ll see human rights wins large and small.

Resettlement for refugees. Papua New Guinea will no longer be a resettlement country for refugees from Australia but we continue to fight the cruel practices of trapping people offshore. Meetings with the Minister and Department have provided some hope that our long-sought goal of opening the New Zealand resettlement deal is closer than ever.

Community Sponsorship. Since 2018, we’ve been calling for the federal government to improve our existing Community Sponsorship Program (CSP), to make it accessible for Australians to welcome refugees to our country. In 2022 we will continue to urgently campaign until the CSP has been substantially improved, and is successfully bringing refugees, including those from the conflict in Afghanistan, to safety.

Indigenous rights. In just one year across Australia close to 600 children aged 10 to 13 years were locked up and thousands more were hauled through the criminal legal system. In 2022, Amnesty will build on the momentum of the #RaiseTheAge campaign to pressure states to raise the age of criminal responsibility to 14, in line with human rights standards.

Amnesty has already taken action against the NT Government’s plans to expand the Don Dale youth detention facility, as this contradicts the findings of the Royal Commission. Amnesty’s campaign continues with growing support.

We will also continue to fight the heinous practice of transporting children in ‘police cages’ in the Northern Territory.

Your support couldn’t be more important - because there’s still so much work to do to build the world that we all want. 

Your donation today can help take more crucial steps in 2022 towards a world where everyone can enjoy their rights without discrimination or fear.

Amnesty doesn’t accept funding from governments or political organisations. This financial independence means we’re free to campaign with objectivity and impartiality and to defend human rights worldwide.

All donations of $2 and over are tax-deductible in Australia.
