Iftar in Bournemouth

In conjunction with Feed our Community we will be hosting an Iftar on 21st March. This will be at the Garden Rooms café in Boscombe. An Iftar is the  evening meal with which Muslims end their daily Ramadan fast at sunset. It is a significant religious observance during the holy month of Ramadan, symbolizing the breaking of the fast.
We’re still at the planning stage, but Nabila Hanson, Amnesty International UK country coordinator for China, and Professor Bonnie Ling, from Work Better Innovations, have been booked as speakers.

Write for Rights 2023

You’ve missed our planned events, but do check out our main Write for Rights post as you can Take Action throughout January.

It’s great to announce that Bournemouth library have welcomed us back to hold not one, but two W4R events. We are booked for
Friday 8th December 1.30 – 3.30
Saturday 9th  December 1.30 – 3.30

W4R is Amnesty International’s annual campaign, sending greetings cards to prisoners of conscience, their families and other human rights defenders around the world.  Worldwide several million messages of support and appeal letters are now sent during a W4R campaign. They made a big difference to the people and communities confronting injustice and facing human rights violations.
We have tried numerous venues around Bournemouth over past 20 years, most outside and invariably cold or wet, sometimes both. Please stop by and sign a card.
We have a comprehensive post on W4R, giving details of all the featured cases, with videos and sample letters. Please check it out.
