Successful Write for Rights campaign on 13 December 2014 in Whitechapel


We had a quite successful day last Saturday at the Whitechapel Idea Store. We set up a stall dedicated to eight of this year's prisoners of conscience of the Write for Rights campaign. Many people came along and signed our solidarity cards, some of them even prepared their own cards! We also managed to take a few pictures and to join the Twitter campaign for Dr Mohamed al-Roken, a defence lawyer from the United Arab Emirates. Thanks to all of you who attended and supported the event!

TH&C Amnesty Group's success with books!

On 18 November our group supported Sarah Dodgson, the organiser for Books for Amnesty, at an amazing book sale. We welcomed employees of Amnesty, a few dealers and members of the public as costumers. The successful book sale took over £1,000. A huge thank you to everyone who helped! 
Our group will continue to support Sarah at book sales and we may consider running one at HRAC ourselves soon.
