SOUTHEND AMNESTY GROUP NEXT MEETING THURSDAY 14th FEBRUARY
Our next meeting is on Thursday 14th February at 7:30pm at The Balmoral Centre, Salisbury Avenue, Westcliff-on-Sea SS0 7AU - hope to see you there.
We'll be writing on behalf of:
- Taner Kılıç a lawyer and human rights defender, and honorary chair of Amnesty International Turkey who has been released on bail after spending over 14 months in prison but still faces criminal charges because of his human rights work.
- Eduardo Cardet Concepción, a medical doctor and pro-democracy activist, arrested in Cuba on 30 November 2016 after publicly criticising the recently deceased former President, Fidel Castro; and
- Zeynab Jalalian, an Iraqi-Kurdish activist jailed after a grossly unfair trial, who is being denied urgent medical care.
We'll be handing out Amnesty wristbands at the Kaiser Chiefs Concert at the Cliffs Pavilion, Westcliff-on-Sea this Sunday 17th February - if you're going (it's sold out) please look out for Martin and Andrew.
