Summary Peter Benenson was outraged when he learned that Portuguese students who publicly hailed freedom while living under a dictatorship were thrown into prison for their beliefs. He began an "Appeal for Amnesty" in an effort to get the students released. This appeal turned into Amnesty International, which is dedicated to persuading governments around the world to free prisoners of conscience or those who have been imprisoned for disagreeing with their actions. Amnesty International also pursues recognition and justice on behalf of the thousands of dissidents in various countries who have simply "disappeared."
