June and July 2020 Meeting Minutes
Our minutes our combined for June and July as we shortened our meetings so we could have the opportunity to welcome some interesting virtual speakers.
In June Ulrike Schmidt, the AIUK Central Europe organiser, gave a virtual talk on human rights problems and discrimination in Hungary, Poland and Slovakia where Roma are under attack. In Poland there are also attacks on women’s rights and LGBT rights.
In July Debora Singer, the AIUK Country Coordinator for Egypt, spoke on Egypt’s crackdown on HR defenders. The talk was followed by discussion and questions. We also did an online action for Ibrahim Ezz el-Din.
