Amnesty International Aarhus University (AIAU)

Amnesty International is the world’s largest human rights organisation: A global movement of 3 million supporters across 150 countries, independent of government funding or political parties.

In Denmark, 100 000 supporters work for Amnesty to defend human rights and dignity. Last year alone global statistics showed that:

1 in 6 people in the world still live in slums.
Every 5 minutes somewhere in the world a child is still dying of extreme poverty.
Torture abuses are still condoned in 111 countries.
And 55 countries in the world still practice unjust trials for human rights abuses.

This group consists of English-speaking Danish students and international exchange students from all over the world. As a student body affiliated with Amnesty International Aarhus, we embrace a multicultural approach to human rights activism. We strongly encourage a diverse range of students to work side by side to deliver Amnesty's message to the Aarhus Universitet campus.

Our message is one of hope triumphing over global injustice through positive activism and the promotion of equal human rights with targeted seasonal campaigning.

Regular meetings are held in the Amnesty office for those students who desire to be active members.

Come and join in one day to see what it's all about!

Or if meetings are not your style... simply add your contact email address to our group wall and you will be added to our mailing list. It's an ideal way to stay informed of the different campaigns we are running and how you can take part in some of our special events such as: -

* Movie nights
* Pub quizzes
* Social debates
* Cultural food exchanges
* Group letter writing sessions and more...

All supporters welcome!
