Dear <<First Name>>,

Come to the Friends Meeting House Jesus Lane at 7.30pm  on Thursday 9th January and hear Hugh Sandeman and Debora Singer give their account of how ordinary Egyptians are targeted for simply expressing their views. They are Amnesty's Country Co-cordinators for Egypt.

We remember Cambridge student Giulio Regeni who was murdered in Cairo nearly 4 years ago and Ibrahim Ezz El-Din subject of an urgent action recently who demonstrate the huge risks to human rights defenders in Egypt currently.  Ibrahim is one of thousands who have been arrested arbitrarily in a crackdown by the Sisi government.

Then to mark LGBT History month, we shall be hosting a talk on LGBT+ Rights in Post-colonial Hong Kong on 13 February by Eliz Wong, PhD Candidate at LSE. She will examine the dramatic changes in public attitudes towards sexual minorities and the development in LGBT+ rights in Hong Kong in the last 20 years and the struggle for democracy in Hong Kong. All very topical!

Both talks are free and followed by refreshments.

We shall have a stall in Cambridge Market Square stalls this Saturday 14 December for International Human Rights Day. Everyone is welcome to help on the stall any time between 10.30am and 1pm.

We look forward to seeing you 
Best wishes
Sue Woodsford, Chair
