This book speaks for freedom. It tells the stories of prisoners of conscience and people facing torture or death at the hands of the state. It tells also of the countless men and women who have spoken out in their defence. Spanning two and a half decades of contemporary history and sketching a remarkable portrait of human rights in dozens of countries, ‘Voices for Freedom’ reflects the work of Amnesty International and the lives of the people it has sought to protect. This anthology is dedicated to those who have struggled and suffered for freedom.
