EDITED 27 July 2022
We have gone back to meeting in person (with a Zoom connection). We hope to have a ‘live’ meeting in September 2022 (12th) with the opportunity for someone to join via Zoom if they wish. To be candid this does not always work well but does enable someone to participate.
We are an active group and new members are always welcome. Some just ‘join’ the local group – which is free – while others join Amnesty International for which you have to pay. There are well over 200 members in the Salisbury area.
The best thing is to come along to an event we are organising and make yourself known. Alternatively, come to a group meeting on the second Thursday of the month and is usually held on Victoria Road but details will appear before a meeting to confirm. We will be at People in the Park event in September which would be a good time to come and say hello.
Some people want to join because of a particular thing which moves them to want to take action: the death penalty or violence against women for example. Others want to take part in human rights activity generally.
There are no meetings at present (2021) because of the pandemic. We may be able to resume in the summer. This year – in addition our normal activities – we expect to focus on the government’s plans to abolish the Human Rights Act.
We still await details following their recent announcements.
