Topic:- Amnesty International
Amnesty International is an organisation of individuals, who are concerned for the plight of people imprisoned for non-Criminal reasons. They may be accused of crimes but the reality is that they are victims of corrupt regimes and incarcerated to prevent them exposing political truths.

The members of Amnesty International show their concern for these victims by exposing these situations and writing to Governments, or people in authority, protesting their imprisonment and hoping by such pressure to obtain their release.

The Speaker is still to be announced.
