Sutton Amnesty Plaque Relocation
March of 1998 saw a major event in the history of the group. In conjunction with Sutton Council a plaque was unveiled close to Peacocks in Sutton High Street by the Mayor of Sutton, to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Also lending support that day were MP’s Tom Brake and Paul Burstow. In a moving ceremony, chair Colum McAndrew and the group reminded locals of the names of 15 victims of human rights abuses from countries all over the world that the group had worked on over the years.
Our Chair recently contacted Sutton Council and had them move and secure our Sutton Amnesty Anniversary Plaque. This can now be viewed opposite Peacocks on Sutton High Street. More pictures of the location can be downloaded from this webpage.
