Joining

EDITED 20 August 2020

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.

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.

The group has this blog site and can be found on twitter.  We also have a Facebook page.  We very much welcome contributions to our web or twitter pages even if it’s only just a small comment.

There are no meetings at present (2020) because of the pandemic. We may be able to resume in the autumn.

This year – in addition our normal activities – we expect to focus on the government’s plans to abolish the Human Rights Act although prolonged delays in announcing quite what they are going to do suggest that they might be having second thoughts.  We shall see …

    Hello Salisbury Group, our chairman Mr.Bryn Davis of the Isle of Wight Group understands your group have a ‘film’ called I believe CRASH for loan to other Amnesty Groups. Please may I have details of this offer asap to bring to my group’s meeting on Friday 5th June.
    Kind regards

    HOW DO I CHECK BEFORE YOUR SEPTEMBER MEETING? YOU SEEM TO BE CAREFUL NOT TO GIVE ANY DIRECT FORM OF CONTACT? A TELEPHONE NUMBER WOULD BE USEFUL.

    Hello
    I am interested in joining the Salisbury group. I am recently retired and have time to become more involved. I note that you are not holding meetings at present due to COVID. I’d be grateful if you would contact me once you resume.
    Very best wishes
    Jennifer

      Dear Jennifer,

      Many thanks for your message and I am sorry not to have replied before now: our lack of activity at the moment means we don’t look at the site as often as we should. I’d be delighted to discuss joining with you so perhaps the best thing is to give me a call sometime Salisbury 782382. Best wishes, Peter

        Hi Peter,
        Thanks for getting back to me.
        I’m just off walking for a couple of days.
        I’ll call upon return.
