As mass anti-government protests flare across several countries in the Middle East and North Africa, Amnesty International is urging all state authorities in the region to respect human rights, including the rights of those now demanding change.
Repressive governments across the Middle East and North Africa are under pressure and face surging demands for political, economic and social reform. Already, protesters have been killed on the streets by police and thousands have been arrested or beaten as state security forces try to quell the unrest. New curbs on freedom of expression have been imposed with online social media, a vital organization tool for activists, being targeted.
