REFORM US POLICY AND STOP TORTURE

Amnesty International has appealed to President Bush to make the eradication of torture and ill-treatment by US agents, as well as the USA's full compliance with international law and standards for the treatment and trial of detainees, a hallmark of his second term in office. The appeal was sent to coincide with the President's inauguration.

US detention and interrogation policies in the aftermath of September 11 have flouted hard-won principles of human rights. Individual detainees and their families, the rule of law and the reputation of the USA have suffered. Further, US policy and practice have set a bad example for those governments looking for justification to employ their own repressive conduct.

SUDAN: PERPETRATORS OF WAR CRIMES AND CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY MUST BE BROUGHT TO JUSTICE

Despite 21 years of war crimes and crimes against humanity, not one single perpetrator has been brought to justice in Sudan. Write to the US Secretary of State urging the UN Security Council to ensure that perpetrators of grave crimes in Sudan are now brought to justice.

Taking 'Stock' of Corporate Behavior: Using shareholder activism to promote and defend human rights

Since the 1970s, shareholders have used their power as stock owners to press companies for change on a wide range of human rights issues. These issues have included doing business under repressive regimes (such as apartheid South Africa or military ruled Burma); corporate use of security forces (as has occurred in Nigeria and Indonesia); and poor working conditions in factories.
