Tomorrow marks the 50th Anniversary of Amnesty International. Burmese opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi, who was freed after 15 years under house arrest with the help of a long-fought Amnesty international Campaign, said the milestone highlights the organization’s lasting dedication to “prisoners of conscience” all over the world.

Since 1961, Amnesty International has defended rights across 150 countries, employing everything from letter-writing and demonstrations to direct lobbying of people with power and influence. Sampsonia Way shares a common cause of protecting free expression and celebrates Amnesty International’s devotion to global human rights.
