Minutes of our July meeting are available thanks to group member Lesley for compiling them. We discussed the death penalty report (see the full version here); North Korea; the forthcoming film evening; the summer BBQ and plans for a Celebration of Human Rights event in 2018 in partnership with the Cathedral. This has come about because of the governments desire to take us out of the European Court of Justice and abolish the Human Rights Act. Although it is doubtful if either will actually come about, it does reveal a mindset in the government which is very worrying for the future of human rights in the UK. It also goes hand in hand with our increasing deals with dubious regimes abroad who are serial human rights offenders such as Saudi Arabia.
If you live in the Salisbury area and would like to join us, then the best thing is to come to one of our events and make yourself known. At the end of the minutes you will see a list of planned events or you can keep an eye on Twitter and Facebook.
