About Amnesty TV

by Neil Boorman, 0 Comments

Amnesty TV is a new video magazine show that’s available to watch online for free. It’s a mix of satirical comedy, campaign stunts, short documentaries, outspoken opinion and real news. Amnesty has teamed up with an all-star list of journalists, comedians, cartoonists, filmmakers and pranksters to produce the show, which runs every other Friday on this website and our YouTube channel.

Amnesty International started out as a small network of activists working together to get things done. 50 years and 3 million members later, Amnesty is building a new social network online. And with Amnesty TV, we’re using our freedom of expression to protect those who have none.
