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 Rights
  • Occupied Palestinian Territories
  • South East Asia
  • Syria
  • Stop Torture


Our group has campaigned on behalf of three prisoners of conscience:

  • 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
