Richmond & Twickenham Amnesty Group's May 2022 Meeting

Our next meeting will be on Thursday 12th May. It is now several months since we had a face-to-face meeting, but this month we have decided to meet once again from 8pm - 9.30pm at the Twickenham Club, 7 Church St, Twickenham TW1 3NJ, and we hope many of you will be able to join us in person. 

We know that some members are not yet ready to meet in person and therefore we also plan to stream the meeting online from the Twickenham Club. The Zoom link has been sent to members by email

Thursday's meeting will be an important opportunity to think about the issues we want to tackle over the coming year. In particular, we must decide on a case or campaign to focus on and whether we have enough support from members to engage the public on the streets of Twickenham.

At the moment, we are considering these Amnesty campaigns:

Alaa Abdel Fattah is a well-known political activist, writer and government critic currently in prison in Egypt:

El Hiblu 3 are risking life in prison for their roles in helping fellow asylum-seekers escape torture

Amnesty's new Right to Protest Campaign will be launching later next month. More on this in the latest groups newsletter:

But of course, members are welcome to bring their own choices and ideas for discussion. So please come along to the Twickenham Club if you can next Thursday.
