A lot of the Amnesty Blackheath and Greenwich group’s time at the moment is focused on our amazing book sale on Saturday 21 June. However, there is always time to take action in defence of human rights…
Starting today, as part of the build up to Refugee Week, is a free photography exhibition called ‘The Refugee’s Gift’ at St Martin in the Field.
The Amnesty UK Country Coordinators for Europe are organising a demonstration
It will be held in commemoration of the Gezi Park demonstrations which started in June 2013. The focus will be on justice for the victims of police violence and for freedom of expression
Refugees and migrants are risking their lives to reach Europe. Many have fled from conflict and poverty at home. If they make it to Europe’s borders, they are too often met with violence and ill-treatment and turned away without question.
Amnesty Blackheath and Greenwich group now have a Facebook event page for the Saturday 21 June book sale. We would encourage you to join it, share it and invite your friends too. Thanks for all your support for our annual event – now in it’s 40th year.
Full book sale details and information can be found on our blog
After some thought and discussion we have decided to use the hashtag #AmnestyBookSale for our Saturday 21 June. It’s the most obvious one to use and no one else uses it. So please use it in the run-up to the day and on the day itself to join in the conversation about this amazing event. Thanks!
