Twenty five years ago today, on June 15th, 1986, the Amnesty International A Conspiracy of Hope tour broadcast live on MTV from Giants Stadium.
The Conspiracy of Hope tour was a celebration of our 25th anniversary and it introduced countless Americans to human rights and made life-long Amnesty members.
U2 was part of our movement then (watch their amazing performance in 1986 above!) and they are still with us fighting for justice today.
Bono recently saluted Amnesty on our 50th birthday from the stage during U2′s 360 tour last month:
Thank you Bono and all the members of U2 for your continued support of human rights for all! Here’s to another 25 years working together for justice, freedom… and hope.
