Talk & Film on 12 September with Park Jin-hyun  who escaped from starvation in North Korea to China who sent her back!  
Dear <<First Name>>,

Cambridge Amnesty Group begins the term this Thursday 12 September at 7.30pm in
Friends Meeting House Jesus Lane CB5 8BA with talks and a film on North Korea.
 
Dr Kenny Latunde Dada country co-ordinator for North Korea will introduce Park Jihyun who bravely managed to escape from starvation in N Korea to flee to China but was sent back  again. This is a rare opportunity to talk to Park Ji-hyun about her experiences in N Korea and her treatment in China when she escaped. A short film on her life will be followed by Q&A. Then coffee and a campaign meeting for those who want to stay.
 
Further meetings include Paul Dawson on 10 October on Yemen and the sale of UK weapons to Saudi Arabia, which the High Court has judged to be illegal. What will the government do now?
 
Then on 14 November Paul Clark, an ecclesiastical observer in Israel/Palestine, will talk to us about his recent experience in Hebron and on 11 December we round off the term with our annual Write for Rights Bring and Share Party with a session writing Christmas cards to greet 12 prisoners nominated by Amnesty HQ.
 
You may also like to come to our stall in Cambridge Market Square on Saturday 21 September (10.30am to 1pm) to mark International Day of Peace. Further stalls have been arranged for monthly Saturdays on 12 October  (Death Penalty), 30 November (Write for Rights) and 14 December (International Human Rights Day).
 
We hope you may be joining us for one or more of these events. 
 
Best wishes

Join a subgroup and campaign together for humanity and human rights

Are you passionate about a particular issue, or would like to learn more about an area of our work? Come along to one of our subgroup meetings which focus on key Amnesty International campaigns.


LGBTI - Love is a Human Right
From the UK to Uganda, we're taking action to challenge discrimination targeted at people for their sexual orientation or gender identity. If you want to step up and speak out against the hate, then join our letter writing and other events. For more information, please e-mail amnestycambridgelgbti@gmail.com.


Human Rights in Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territories
The Israel and Occupied Palestinian Territories subgroup works on human rights abuses suffered by people who live in this problematic area of the world. We sometimes write letters on behalf of individuals, for example, human rights defenders who are punished for their activities, and sometimes we address problems experienced by whole communities, like those whose land and homes are threatened by illegal settlements. If you would like to join, please contact Pam Manning, pamjomanning@gmail.com
