Thousands of Amnesty International supporters, diaspora groups, trade unionists and students are set to join a global day of action on 11 February in solidarity with protesters in the Middle East and North Africa demanding reforms and greater respect for human rights.

“Human rights were and are at the core of the demands for change in the Middle East and North Africa that have led to the extraordinary events of the last year,” said Salil Shetty, Amnesty International’s Secretary General.
