USA: People must stand up to Trump’s anti-rights rhetoric

On the day of the inauguration of US President Donald Trump, Amnesty International’s Secretary General Salil Shetty said:

"We are facing what could turn into a major roll-back on hard-fought freedoms both in the USA and across the world."

"It is up to each one of us to fight President Trump’s spiteful rhetoric of discrimination, hate and xenophobia. Amnesty will resist injustice every step of the way."

"When people join together and stand up for the dignity and equality of all people everywhere, the toxic discourse of hatred and fear cannot overcome that."
