Tomorrow night (Tuesday 26 August) is our regular letter signing drop-in at the Greenwich Picturehouse. This month we’ll be signing letters on cases including Ihar Tsikhanyuk in Belarus and Arzhang Davoodi in Iran. Find us from 8-9pm outside the bar upstairs (lift access too). All welcome as always.
It’s our next group meeting on Tuesday at 8pm at St Margaret’s on Brandram Road. As usual all are welcome to join in our discussion of human rights updates, interesting events and planning this month’s letter writing. There is also the chance to have cuppa and a chat.
All welcome as usual. You will find us on the crypt which you can by steps or ramp at the side of the church.
