Amnesty International Philippines has been working on a broad range of human rights work since it was formed. While we acknowledge that any human rights challenge deserves attention, we understand that it is necessary to focus our strengths and resources on where we can make the most impact. It is also necessary to make our campaigns relevant to the local context. And this approach has made us successful!
The police are mandated to protect the rights of citizens. However, recent data have shown that the police have also committed torture and otherhuman rights violations. In this global campaign, we will work to ensure that torture victims have access to remedies and the police are made accountable for their actions.
In this day and age, some people are still deprived of the freedom to make decisions that directly impact on their bodies and lives. In this campaign, we will work together to make sure people are able to decide on their own bodies, their lives, and their own sexual reproductive health.
