The Southampton group of Amnesty International meets every second Monday of each month to listen to a speaker on human rights related issues and to organise events and campaigns in Southampton.

The next meeting is on 12th February at 19:30 in the Avenue St Andrew's church, The Avenue, Southampton.

Alex Jackson, the Amnesty Country Coordinator for Eritrea,

has kindly agreed to talk to the group about


a country that hardly ever features in the news, even though the human rights situation there is desperate.

Everyone is welcome to our meetings: whether you are or not a national member of Amnesty International, please come and see how you can become directly involved in promoting human rights world-wide and defend the people who suffer because they dared to raise their voice.
