Group Meeting - May 12th 2014
At our May meeting, we had a breath-taking talk on the situation in Syria from Amnesty's coordinator @Planet_Slater. Most striking was the image of hundreds of trucks full of aid, waiting in Turkey, while the UN tries to decides whether they can cross the border legally.
Currently more then 9 million people in Syria urgently need humanitarian aid.
Thank you to all who came to our information stall in the Lightbox on Saturday 10th May. We collected 41 signatures on postcard actions and raised awareness significantly amongst staff and visitors alike. Being indoors it was very civilised and there were some lovely exhibitions to go and look at in our tea breaks.
