Kenya: Erroneous use of Amnesty International’s logo at US demo

It has come to our attention that Amnesty International’s logo has been used at a demonstration by Kenyans in New York on the forthcoming presidential election re-run, in a way that could imply that the organization supports the opposition National Super Alliance (NASA) coalition.

We wish to make clear that the logo was used without the permission of Amnesty International.

Amnesty International is a movement of more than 7 million members and supporters, and is impartial and independent of any government or political ideology. As such it does not support any political party or organization in Kenya or elsewhere in the world.
