About this group
Welcome to the Hampstead and Belsize group web page
We meet every two weeks on the second and fourth Wednesday of the month at locations within Hampstead and Belsize. Please get in touch for more details.
We're currently focussing on five campaign areas:
- Women and Human Righ
- Occupied Palestinian Territories
- South East Asia
- I Welcome Campaign
Our current individual at risk is Jorge Gonzalez Nieva, held until recently, in pre trial detention for 12 years.
Our group has campaigned on behalf of prisoners of conscience:
- Laisa Santos Sampaio, Environmental campaigner in northern Brazil.
- Chen Guangcheng, a Chinese human rights lawyer who is thankfully now free
- Hakamada Iwao, who was released death row in Japan in March 2014
- Anas al-Shogre, a Syrian peace campaigner who disappeared. Regretfully, we have had to end our campaign for Anas
