It’s our group letter signing drop-in at Greenwich Tavern from 7.30-9.00pm on Tuesday. All welcome.
Together at the #AmnestyBookSale we raised £10079.68. We also got loads of messages of solidarity for Nazanin and letters to local MPs signed.
Thanks all for your support.
The book sale opens tomorrow (Saturday) at 9am. We expect people will start queuing from about 8.30am. There are over 10,000 books so we expect a wide choice of good quality books to be available all day till it ends at 5pm.
Homemade cakes and other refreshments will be available. In addition as always we will be campaigning on our stall by the entry and this time it will be to free Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe from London who is unjustly imprisoned in Iran. We also anticipate her family will join during the day.
For those on social media our the event hashtag is #AmnestyBookSale. The Free Nazanin campaign uses #FreeNazanin.
The Amnesty Blackheath and Greenwich group are preparing for their annual book sale on Sat 17 Jun. As is usual we welcome book donations from individuals, organisations and publishers. If you have any books to donate please email AIBG.firstname.lastname@example.org for details of how to. Feel free to share this post.
Staff at Russian newspaper Novaya Gazeta are fearing for their lives. On 1 April the paper reported that over a hundred men suspected of being gay had been abducted, abused and some even killed because of their perceived sexuality. Chechen authorities have warned the journalists they will ‘face retaliation’.

In preparation for the book sale we are asking from those that support it to help us get ready for the big day or help out on it.
In advance of the day we will require volunteers at our garage on Dartmouth Row from Monday 15 May. The garage will be open weekdays 7-9pm and weekends 4-6pm.
On the day (Saturday 17 June) we would appreciate help at any time of day between 9-5. However we would really appreciate help between 5-7pm to help tidy up the church and loads books into vans.
If you can help email us in any way please contact us on AIBG.email@example.com
