Amnesty news

I'm sure that like all of us at Amnesty, you will have been deeply concerned for the thousands of people affected by the recent earthquake in China. It has been heartening to see the Chinese authorities and the international community coming together to ease people's suffering.

Now, with the Olympics drawing closer, we must continue to call for the same level of compassion for all Chinese people. Take action today and help Amnesty keep China's human rights record in the spotlight.

With best wishes
