Citizens’ Rights event

Not an Amnesty event, but if you are an EU27 citizen in the U.K. and concerned about current status, this may be helpful.

Others: volunteers to help on the day were being sought, see contact details on the flyer.


#RefugeesWelcome stall

Save the date:

Street Stall: Refugees Welcome

1-3pm Saturday 6th October

near the old WH Smiths, High St, Birmingham,

We will be holding a street stall to promote Amnesty’s Refugees Welcome campaign – in particular the petitions to support refugee families in the UK who have been separated or who face prohibitive charges to access citizenship.

The idea is to create a family-friendly atmosphere with balloons, bubbles and (if feasible) face-painting to attract the public’s attention.  We’ll then talk to people about the issues, and encourage them to sign petitions and action cards.

If you’d like to help out with the stall, drop us an email: amnestybrum@gmail.com

Or if you’re just passing by, say hello and sign an action card.

You are warmly invited to our September Meeting where the focus will be:

The A(mnesty) Team

We love it when a plan (for Human Rights) comes together…
