Amnesty International delievered an important message to the leaders of the political parties in the north as they reminded the 5 main parties to focus on human rights issues throughout the upcoming campaign. This is a timely intervention as Amnesty raise important issues concerned with both the north and also further afield. I look forward to the contribution this group will make and I hope that all candidates heed their pleas. For too long the people of the north have suffered human rights abuses. We must all work together to make sure that is a thing of the past.
