Failing on human rights

World leaders are failing to tackle human rights abuses around the globe, Amnesty International says.

In an annual report, the group says people are still being tortured or ill-treated in at least 81 countries. In at least 54 states they face unfair trial and cannot speak freely in at least 77 nations, the group adds.

It says world leaders should apologies for 60 years of human rights failures since the UN adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in 1948. The group also challenges them “to re-commit themselves to deliver concrete improvements”.

And every day we fail more and more and become more painful!
