Next Meeting Monday 20 April
Our next monthly meeting will be on Monday 20 April 8pm at 23 Colgreave Road, Bloxham. As well as working our way through the monthly pack of action requests and communications from Amnesty HQ, we will be pooling the various responses we have had from the Banbury Parliamentary election candidates to our emails quizzing them on human rights issues, and considering next steps.
At our last meeting we agreed our new "focus" case would be Hakan Yaman, in Turkey. See https://www.amnesty.org.uk/write-rights-hakan-yaman-turkey#.VR7Hmel0wdU We will be pressing the Turkish authorities over the coming months, joining other Amnesty groups, for a full investigation of this appalling case, and for justice for Hakan.
All are very welcome to our meetings, which are friendly and informal and usually take about an hour to an hour and a quarter.
