Amnesty International calls on Ramaphosa and Biden to discuss human rights issues during their meeting this week.

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

In its letters, the organisation 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.

You can find the letter to President Cyril Ramaphosa here and the letter to President Joe Biden here.
