Letter writing this Wednesday 6th November and Talk on Human Rights in China this Thursday 7th November
Lots going on this week and this month.
On Wednesday please join the letterwriting meeting at CB2 focussing on urgent actions anti-death penalty cases. It doesn't matter if you have written letters before or if this will be the first time you write an Amnesty letter. Everything will be there, including friendly help and support.
The following day, on Thursday 7th November, please come to listen to Tiffany Jenkins, AIUK country co-ordinator for China. She will give a talk at the Jesus Lane Friends' Meeting House, 7.45pm on Human Rights in China and AIUK's campaigning on the issues. After the talk the group's campaigns will take centre stage with action planning and letter signing, as well as a little bit of fundraising with among other things cakes and books.
In the latest newsletter you can find more information about the above events, as well as details of the other diary dates of the Cambridge City Group, such as Saturday 16th November's market stall, and information about two other events, organised by other organisations. This includes Ice and Fire's Asylum Monologue on Tuesday 5th November and a Cambridge Law Lecture by Professor John Spencer on People-Trafficking on Thursday 28th November.
In case you would like to eat and cook for Human Rights, I can thoroughly recommend the cookbook produced by the Ely Amnesty group. This terrific collection of 44 delicious recipes is beautifully illustrated and makes a perfect Christmas gift. Details of how to get your copy are also in the newsletter and can be found below.
I am looking forward to seeing you soon.

Ely Amnesty Recipe Book
Four members of the Ely Amnesty group - Sally, Barbara, Colin and Claire - collaborated earlier this year to produce a book of international recipes to raise funds for Amnesty. The book, which has been professionally printed by Burwell Press, contains 44 delicious recipes from every continent, including some unusual ones from countries such as Iraq, Russia, Sicily and Finland, and is illustrated with Barbara’s pen and ink drawings. Chefs Claudia Roden and Guy Harrington contributed recipes, and the stunning front cover photograph was taken by Jason Bell who has just photographed the christening of Prince George. The book costs just £6 (or £7.50 with postage & packing). It would make a delightful Christmas present and it can be bought:
- by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org
- from Barbara’s website http://www.graftonart.biz/products/amnesty/
