We will do the Human Right Thing on Sunday in Shoreditch!

On the coming Sunday, our group is carrying out an action in support of the Human Rights Act (HRA).  With our placards stating human rights currently protected by the HRA, we will be encouraging passers-by to have their photos taken and to tweet them. We will also be tweeting from the @AIUKCTH, so please follow us and use the hashtag #SaveOurAct.
The aim of the event is to raise awareness of the importance of the HRA. 

We will meet at our usual Sunday meeting venue, Kahaila Cafe, on Brick Lane at 10:30am. We aim to kick off the action around 11:00am. Please join us at the cafe or on the streets. In case you can't find us, please contact Sarah on 07896 041340.
Please note that this action will be replacing our fortnightly Sunday meeting at Kahaila Cafe!

Experiences from an amazing AI-QI pub quiz

On 12 April, we occupied again one of the rooms of the The Water Poet pub. I should admit, we are already regulars there:).

So, six great teams competed against each other by trying to identify flags of different countries, figure out which berries they are tasting and to guess who composed The Hebrides Overture.
We also took photo actions for our Iranian prisoner of conscience, Behareh Hedayat and collected some money for the Mexican priest, Fray Tomás Gonzalez.
We closed the evening with a very generous raffle and promised to our friends to get together again in a couple of months for the next quiz.
