February Spotlight Talk
India is the second largest democracy in the world. It has a fast-growing economy, a high literacy rate and an advanced space programme. But how good is its recent human rights record?
Cherry Bird, Amnesty International UK’s expert on India, will discuss violations of human rights in that country in a talk organised by Hammersmith Amnesty Group on Wednesday February 12th at 7.30pm. The issues she will discuss include Kashmir and the Citizenship Amendment Act.
The venue is Hammersmith Quaker Meeting House, 20 Nigel Playfair Avenue, W6 9JY. To find this building, walk to the very end of Nigel Playfair Avenue. At the end of the road, on the right hand side, you will see a small gate set back from the road. That's the entrance to the Quaker Meeting House.
The event is free and open to anyone, not just Amnesty members, and the venue is wheelchair accessible. This talk is the latest in Hammersmith Amnesty Group’s Spotlight free talks where we explore the state of human rights in various parts of the world.
You're welcome to register in advance or you can just turn up on the night. Tickets are available in advance by booking on the link below.
Wheel chair access is available.
