November and December Meetings
Our October meeting focused on several issues in South America. In Colombia there is continuing trouble with para military groups harassing indigenous groups. The new president hopes to reopen peace talks. In Venezuela there have been over 8000 extrajudicial killings in the last 2 years and there are thousands of displaced people and refugees seeking safety in neighbouring countries.
Sue brought us updates on several death penalty problems (Tennessee, 24 Baha’i men in Yemen and a Kurdish lady in Iran who was underage at the time of her crime).
Our next 2 meetings are 21st Nov and 12th Dec both 4.30 at “the Doctors”.
