February 2018 Meeting
Thanks for a productive meeting last Monday.
We decided to work more on the I Welcome refugees campaign & for LGBTI rights. We want to continue concentrating on the Peace Community of San Jose in Colombia, Azza Soliman from Egypt & human rights in the former Soviet Union countries. We decided to participate in the Party in the Park & an event at the Lightbox. We’re going to be busy…
Here are the dates for your diaries:
March 5th – work for Azza Soliman & discussion of AGM resolutions
March 10th – barn dance! Please do come along with all your friends & family https://www.facebook.com/events/804527886421842/
April 7 & 8th – AGM in Swansea
May 14th – I Welcome refugees campaign
June 4th – AIUK’s country coordinator for South American will talk to us about the Peace Community & other struggles for human rights
October 6th – street collection in Woking
Do get in touch if you have further ideas or would like to get more involved.
You may have heard that the Chair of Amnesty Turkey was briefly released from jail (because there’s no evidence against him), only to be re-arrested at the prison gate. This is just heart-breaking for him & his family. Please take a moment to join in the wave of protest: https://www.amnesty.org.uk/actions/free-taner-kilic?from=issue
