Browne and Farron speak out on international human rights

The below videos were recorded at a fringe event hosted by Amnesty International:

JEREMY BROWNE: "It's not just about the records of governments. I hope we have a broader view about the rights and freedoms of the individual...we want to be resolute and vigilant in defence of freedoms...governments can be the protectors of people's rights."

TIM FARRON: "We are absolutely determined to stand shoulder to shoulder with Amnesty International...we are making parliament aware of how vital an issue this is...[the Conservatives] have generally speaking not bought into the language...but the [government is developing] a grown up, liberal approach to human rights."
