African Pride

3pm Saturday 28th May 2016

A showing of this inspirational film, with a discussion, and chance to take action to support LGBT people’s Human Rights around the world.  View the trailer below:

African Pride Trailer 2015 from Laura Fletcher on Vimeo.

“South Africa’s Constitution was the first in the world to prohibit discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation. But rights belie the reality for many. Homophobia has found violent expression in assaults, rape and murders. However this violence is being met with visibility by way of township prides and protests. Each person bearing a banner has their own reason to be visible. There are the loud activists and the shy ones, the lovers, the mourners and the survivors. It is through their stories that African Pride explores this determined, relentless and colourful movement.” IMDB

You are warmly invited to our annual Write for Rights event:

Greetings Cards to Prisoners of Conscience

Thursday 10th December 2015 7-9pm

at Java Lounge city centre branch, 124 Colmore Row, Birmingham, B3 3SD

Keeping with our annual tradition, instead of a formal meeting in December, we meet in a more relaxed setting to take part in Amnesty’s Write for Rights campaign, and get to know each other.  Amnesty have chosen 12 cases of prisoners of conscience and other human rights defenders – we will be writing greetings cards to them, to send a message of hope and solidarity.  And in the friendly setting of a cafe, we can build freindship and solidarity amongst ourselves, to refresh our enthusaim for campiagning in the year ahead.
We will have some cards available, but if you can bring you own please do.  Remember that for some of the cases we are asked not to send a religious message or mention Amnesty (for the safety of the person recieving the card.) Please note that we are meeting in the city centre branch of Java Lounge – not the Moseley one.
All welcome, so come along and get involved! And if it’s you first time, why not drop us an email at amnestybrum@gmail.com so that we know to look out for you and to be extra friendly!

In compliance with Amnesty International UK’s mission to take action focused on preventing and ending grave abuses of human rights, we at AmnestyBrum would like to invite all of you, passionate advocates of human rights, to our peaceful street stall campaign. Our aim is to support women’s rights by affecting the passive attitudes towards violence against women and girls among the regional community.

Women’s Rights are Human Rights Too

Saturday 7th March 2015 12pm to 2pm

High Street, Birmingham City Centre (near WH Smith)

The purpose of the event is also to raise awareness of international cases concerning Violence Against Women, and make a stand just before 8th of March- International Women’s Day! As sign of understanding and empathy with Amnesty’s cases from Afghanistan, Egypt, Spain, El Salvador and Ireland, our stall theme is: dress in Red!

Did you know that…

1 in 3 girls, in developing countries, is married before reaching her 18th birthday?

4 in 10 people, globally, agree that when jobs are scarce, men have more right to them than women?

60 million girls are sexually assaulted at/or on their way to school?

Between 40 and 50 % of women in European Union countries experience unwanted sexual advances, physical contact or other forms of sexual harassment at work? … The list of facts continues!

Don’t turn a blind eye to Woman’s Rights: join us to defend the human rights of women and girls!

Thank you!
