About this group
The Hammersmith and Fulham group was founded in the summer of 1981. In 1993 we proudly set up the first Amnesty Bookshop, and the Bookshop has now reopened in its new location in Hammersmith.
Human Rights in Iran Public Talk
In April 2016, Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe was detained at an Iranian airport, while travelling home to London with her young daughter. The British-Iranian charity worker was later sentenced to five years in prison - for allegedly plotting against the Iranian government. She maintains her innocence, saying she was on holiday in Iran visiting family.
In the light of this, Amnesty International UK’s Country Coordinator for Iran, Oscar Jenz, will be giving a talk about the human rights situation in Iran on Wednesday 13th November at 7.30pm in Hammersmith.
The venue is the Hammersmith Quaker Meeting House, 20 Nigel Playfair Avenue, W6 9JY. It is wheelchair accessible.
The event is free and open to anyone, not just Amnesty members. You can book a place in advance or tickets will be available at the door on the night with guaranteed entry.
