Our Amnesty International group met on 18 January.  We met together to keep in touch with each other and discuss various things, some of them about Amnesty International. Our next meeting is to be held on 8 February when we will be joining with Southampton AI to hear Mike Brown, a member of Clear, who will be telling us about how the refugees they are supporting are coping with Covid 19.

We held our annual Greetings Card evening, as we have done for many previous years, on the nearest Monday to Human Rights Day which is 10 December.  Between 70 to 80 cards were sent to many parts of the world, as far away as China, South America and Malta.  Amnesty Headquarters send out actions through the Internet, and we do these too.
