knightley_amnestyKeira Knightley is the new face for Amnesty International’s human rights campaign. The actress is backing a new short film celebrating the 60th anniversary of the UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UNHR).

She said: “I wanted to be part of this film for Amnesty to help raise awareness of the UDHR and to help them, in a small way, to campaign against the abuses of human rights that are still happening every day. It seems that ‘human rights’ has become a bit of a loaded term in this country, but if you look at the declaration that countries made 60 years ago, it just sets out a series of basic rules about how people should treat each other. The UDHR is something that every one should be aware of and be proud of as a statement of our common humanity.”

So far, only the above picture of Knightley holding a “Protect The Human” banner has been released. However, there is a video on the site in support of the campaign featuring celebrities like Jared Leto, Rosario Dawson, and others. Have a look below:
