Question and answer
Q: The international organization Amnesty International originated from ____________. (Points : 1) the peaceful protests of Mohandas Gandhi the Fourth Geneva Convention the struggle
to free Portuguese students imprisoned by the fascist Salazar dictatorship UN war tribunals
A: UN war tribunals /Amnesty International was founded in 1961 by Peter Benenson, a British lawyer. It was originally his intention to launch an appeal in Britain with the aim of obtaining an amnesty for prisoners of conscience all over the world. [ The committee working for this cause soon found that a detailed documentation of this category of prisoners would be needed. Gradually they realized
that the work would have to be carried out on a more permanent basis; the number of prisoners of conscience was enormous and they were to be found in every part of the world. It is this category of prisoners that Amnesty International calls "prisoners of conscience". The movement proclaimed 1977 "Prisoners of Conscience Year" and collected signatures for an appeal addressed to the General Assembly of the United Nations. ]
