About the Author

Amnesty International UK is a movement of ordinary people from across the world standing up for humanity and human rights. It aims to protect individuals wherever justice, fairness, freedom and truth are denied, and encourages others to join the fight. Amnesty has a network of active youth groups across the UK and promotes its work in secondary schools and other organizations.

...a thought-provoking collection of short stories and poems, cerebrating freedoms or quietly morning their loss. ...it has the force of several one-inch punches, delivered without pause... -- The Guardian

groundbreaking compendium [...] It combines beauty with reality and hope with despair in a way that provokes discussion about human rights, in a highly readable format that will engage even the most reluctant or least academic. [...] exploring these pages is even more highly recommended, as awareness is the most powerful weapon. -- Bianca's Book Blog

Here I Stand includes short stories and poems which explore some of the most important human rights issues facing young people today. -- rightsinfo.org
