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.
Sue Woodsford, Chair
Cambridge Amnesty Group
