Weekly Action - July 10th

Hi Manchester Amnesty

 Manchester Amnesty Weekly Action

 If you can, please do this action and make a difference.

 This week, we have a rather different action that we’d like you all to take part in. At our last group meeting we tried to record a photo-action on behalf of Ahmed Mansoor, however, the technology defeated us. We want to try it again this evening.

 You are invited to a brief Zoom meeting at 6.30pm THIS EVENING (Friday July 10th). Please have a small poster in support of Ahmed. You could put #FreeAhmed, or Release Ahmed, or Justice for Ahmed etc or use the image attached. We will briefly record us all holding our posters – this should take no more than 10 mins. We will then share it on social media and tweet it to the UAE authorities.

 If you want to take part, email our Secretary for the link - anne.walker9@ntlworld.com

We have been actively working on behalf of Ahmed since he was arrested in March 2017. We believe him to be a prisoner of conscience imprisoned for defending human rights in the UAE through his posts on Facebook and Twitter. If you want to find out more about Ahmed, here are a couple of links
