Amnesty turns 50

Shetty led celebrations in London, where Amnesty is based, as supporters in 60 countries also held events half a century after the organisation was founded by a British lawyer.

Addressing Amnesty supporters at a church in the British capital,   Shetty said: “It is clear that threats to human rights lie at the heart of key challenges facing the world.

“And that Amnesty International needs to continue to adapt and evolve if we are to shine a light for freedom and justice in a changing world.” —AFP
