Fylde Coast Amnesty is hosting an Open Meeting
Voices from Syria
A first hand account of the Syrian conflict through the words of Syrian refugee and activist
Dr Haytham Alhamwi
In 2003 Haytham was sentenced to four years in prison for organising street cleaning and anti-bribery campaigns and a protest against the invasion of Iraq in his home town of Daraya, Syria. He was released from prison after serving two-and-a half years of his sentence following a presidential pardon. Haytham has since been based in the UK, where he carried out a PhD in Occupational Health at the University of Manchester and currently serves as the Managing Director of Rethink Rebuild Society, a community and advocacy organisation for the Syrian community in Manchester.
