Russia: Stop Hunting Pussy Riot Members!

Not content with jailing three members of Pussy Riot, reports show that Russian police are hunting for two other members of the band in relation to the cathedral performance.

Sign Amnesty’s petition calling for an immediate stop to this search, which adds to the injustice following a peaceful political protest.

Petition Against Forced Bullfighting

The Portuguese town of Viano do Castelo passed a ban on bullfighting in 2009. But this month, a local administrative court overruled their ordinance, set up a temporary bullring, and staged a fight.

Bullfighting is a cruel sport that kills and injures all animals involved. Viano do Castelo had every right to ban it in the town limits. A court should not overrule the city's law.

Sign the petition condemning the court's action.

Stop Gambia's Execution Spree

After 27 years of not using the death penalty, President Yahya Jammeh has decided to bring it back to ‘rid the country of all criminals’.

9 executions took place on 23rd August, without warning, time for appealing or even time to say goodbye.The remaining 38 inmates on death row are expected to be executed by mid-September.

Political dissent is being disguised as treason, which is a capital offence. The President has also threatened to behead all homosexuals.

Sign Amnesty's petition calling for a retraction and restoring the unofficial moratorium of the death penalty.
