June 2014 NEWSLETTER







CAMPAIGNING
BURMA - At the meeting we wrote Urgent Action letters on behalf of 2 imprisoned activists but the deadline for letters was 24th June so it is no longer applicable. Details of an on-line petition relating to further democratisation in Burma and some more letter-writing on behalf of Dr Tun Aung can be found on the Group Website.
Brazil – we took part in a photo action relating to human rights in Brazil.

Details of this – including the photo – and how to write about police brutality toward protesters can be found on the Group Website

Meeting on 12th June at Avenue Baptist Church
We spent the main part of this meeting watching videos on human rights issues – not exactly entertaining but illustrative of the concerns that Amnesty is all about. We had a brief discussion about Guantanamo and, after watching videos about oppression in Burma, wrote letters on behalf of activists imprisoned there (see front page).
These are the videos we watched – they’re all available on Youtube:
