28th marked the day for the Decriminalization of Abortion
in Latin America and the Caribbean.
Rights and equality are very important pillars of my philosophy.
I am honored to do what I can to support Amnesty in their
continuous efforts. Everyone should live free from fear.”
– Shepard Fairey
message from the Amnesty International - Multiple demonstrations
organized by the woman’s movement and supported by
Amnesty International are taking place in major cities across
Latin America. We are calling for a repeal of the abortion
ban and an end to sexual violence among women and girls.
We feel that this symbol of the butterfly shows that for
every one of us, there are thousands of people around the
world that are with us in our struggle. To create this solidarity
in the world between so many countries and people, is a
great work of Amnesty and we hope it continues and gets
stronger. Please visit us at www.Amnesty.org
