Forthcoming Local Group Events


 
Corona Virus - Covid-19 update
 
Worcester Group Meetings on-line only until further notice
The monthly meetings for the Worcester Group of Amnesty International will not be taking place as physical meetings for the time being as a consequence of the "Social Distancing" and other measures as advised by the UK government. Instead we have developed a pattern of on-line meetings which, for 2021, will normally be held on the second Wednsday of the month starting at around 7.30 pm. During this year the format of the meetings may well depend on the Covid rules in place at the time. If you wish to join one of our on-line meetings then please get in touch by email .
 
Worcester Group May Meeting
provisional date Wednesday 12th May starting at around 7.30 pm - our May meeting will be held on-line and will feature a talk on modern day slavery. The key speaker had yet to be confirmed when posting this notice and, depending on the availbility of the key speaker, may need to be re-arranged. As ever we will also be focussing on updates for our prisoner of conscience case, Aster Fissehatsion as well as updates on various other cases in Latin America and on the Horn of Africa region including Eritrea and Ethiopia. If you wish to join in then please email your request.

A specific contribution of the Worcester Group to Amnesty International's 60th Anniversay will be a poetry evening to be held via Zoom with contributions on the topics of prisoners of conscience, AI's 60 years of existence and what the Group has been doing since it was founded. If you wish to join in then please email your request.

Worcester Pride 2021
Saturday 18th September throughout the day. The annual Worcester Pride event is currently scheduled to take place in The Cornmarket, in Worcester city centre and feature various events and stalls throughout the day. The Worcester Group of Amnesty International will be present on their own stall with a chance for you to meet members of the group and talk about human rights. If you wish to join in then please email your request.
 

On behalf of the Worcester Group of Amnesty International I wish you the best of health during these stressful times. Please keep up the letter-writing and petitions as human rights issues are still critical issues for individuals and communities worldwide alongside and, in some cases, directly related to those important health issues.
