United States of America: Rights for All
This report reveals a persistent & widespread pattern of human rights violations in the U.S.A. It points to entrenched & nationwide police brutality. It highlights the physical & sexual abuse of prisoners, many of whom are held in inhuman & degrading conditions. People who have fled to the U.S.A. in search of safety are treated as criminals & held behind bars. The number of people executed each year is rising relentlessly, & more than 3,000 condemned prisoners are on death row. Racism & discrimination contribute to the denial of the fundamental rights of countless men, women & children. In this report, which is part of a worldwide compaign against human rights abuses in the U.S.A., Amnesty International challenges the U.S. authorities at all levels: * To bring U.S. laws & practices into line with international standards. * To reinforce the U.S.A.'s commitment to international human rights protection. * To work towards a world where the freedoms & rights enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights are a reality. Amnesty International is adding its voice to the continuing efforts of the U. S. human rights community. It is time for the U.S.A. to deliver rights for all its people. Price $12.95 plus $3.50 shipping.
