Minehead Group's November newsletter
Our November newsletter includes reports of our latest letter writing afternoon and also our October group meeting, when we had a training session on Amnesty's new global campaign - Brave. This campaign seeks to strengthen the recognition and protection of human rights defenders (HRDs) and is in response to increased attacks and targeting of HRDs, activists and civil society organisations. Over recent years, HRDs have faced harassment, intimidation, smear campaigns, ill-treatment and unlawful detention. In 2016, at least 281 HRDs were killed in 22 countries.
The newsletter also includes the regular columns of actions you can take this month, diary dates and campaign updates.
