0 Reviews
This report was the title document of Amnesty's 1998-99 Rights for All campaign which reveals a persistent and widespread pattern of human rights violations in the USA. It points to entrenched and nationwide police brutality. It highlights the physical and sexual abuse of prisoners, many of whom are kept under inhuman and degrading conditions. The number of people executed each year is rising relentlessly, and more than 3000 condemned prisoners are on death row. People who have fled to the USA in search of safety are treated as criminals and held behind bars. Racism and discrimination contribute to the denial of the fundamental rights of countless men, women and children.
