Amnesty International Society this fortnight…

Standard

Wednesday 8th of October: We spent this meeting looking at different Amnesty campaigns and made a democratic decision to focus our next campaign efforts on: Women’s Rights.

On Friday 10th there was our fortnightly cake stall in the Forum for fundraising.
Monday evening (13th) we had a letter writing social in the Ram to write letters for the Malaysian student Ali Abdul Jalil- a prisoner of conscience, detained solely for the peaceful exercise of his right to freedom of expression.

During our meeting today we made posters for the My Body, My Rights campaign as well as writing letters for a ten year old Afghan girl named Brishna who was raped in May 2014. We’re writing these letters to try to bring about change through pressuring governments to take more of an active role in ensuring these injustices do not continue!
