VIDEO: The Human Rights Act and peace in Northern Ireland

Watch the new video from Amnesty International UK:

On Good Friday in 1998, something amazing happened. An agreement was signed that finally brought peace to Northern Ireland after 30 years of bitter conflict.

The Human Rights Act is at the core of that deal – it helped to build trust, integrity and reconciliation after three decades of bloodshed. Eighteen years on, the UK government is proposing to scrap the Act and risk destabilising peace.
