Amnesty Student Groups

Last week we made contact with the University of Greenwich Amnesty group. They are keen to work with us as their local Amnesty group. In addition there is a Goldsmiths College Amnesty group that are getting started again. If you are a local student and want to know more please contact Amnesty’s Student Team on student@amnesty.org.uk or email us on aibgsocialmedia@gmail.com

Support Belgrade Pride Action

Belgrade Pride Solidarity Photo Action

The Amnesty UK LGBTI network have produced a blog including an action in solidarity with Belgrade Pride. It would be great if you can promote it to your friends and colleagues via Facebook, Twitter, email etc

Please find the Belgrade Pride blog post here with details on how to show your solidarity with the event and an example of the photo action is above. If you can take a photo but aren’t on social media then please email your photo to aibgsocialmedia@gmail.com and we will share for you.

Thanks for your support!
