Festival of Social Justice - Local Group Events
Festival of Social Justice – May 2021
Celebrate 60 years of Amnesty International
CHURCH STRETTON AMNESTY invites you to join us in events for film, poetry and walking.
FILM You are invited to join others from around the region in an on-line film experience.
‘Wajib’ (2017, 96 mins, cert 15), is a poignant, bittersweet comedy of estrangement and identity. It is a drama about simmering tensions of life as Palestinians living in Nazareth and the contrasts of tradition and modernity in family life.
It works like this:
Read a review of the film and watch a helpful introduction.
Watch the film at home whenever you choose
Join a Zoom chat on Thursday 20th May at 7.30 to talk about the film and share thoughts.
All on-line links for review, film and Zoom from Liz Knowles 07855 997257 email firstname.lastname@example.org
POETRY ZOOM EVENING: Saturday 22nd May 7.30-8.30

WALKING: Throughout May
Amnesty supporters are challenging themselves to walk 60 km during May, raising money for Amnesty International at the same time. We may walk on our own or in groups, providing an opportunity to come together after months of social isolation, COVID regulations permitting. We hope to arrange some walks in the beautiful Shropshire Hills and you are welcome to join us for any of these walks.
To take up the challenge and find out more contact David and Trish Howard 01694 722904
