Amnesty USA and Amnesty South Africa Make Human Rights Asks Ahead of White House Visit

Amnesty International has urged South African President Ramaphosa and United States President Biden to discuss human rights issues facing both countries ahead of their meeting in Washington D.C. this week.

In its letters, the organization highlighted ongoing concerns with human rights issues in South Africa such as gender-based violence, right to education and migration and xenophobia, and in the United States which includes access to abortion, gun violence and Covid-19 tests and treatment, which we hope the two presidents will raise with each other during their meeting.
