human rights, free speech, activism
Our aim is to bring attention to world-wide violations through a number of campaigns run by Amnesty International. We hope to mobilise, engage and include Queen Mary students in our shared goal to protect human rights.
Our society will focus on bringing awareness to causes where justice is hindered.
We are an inclusive society and invite students from across other societies to participate with us.
Interested in debate? There will always be room to improve your speaking and knowledge about international laws with the discussions we put together!
In raising awareness about human rights violations, we are also adamant about putting together speaker events, semester-long campaigns and workshops to teach students the art of effective campaigning, networking and protest.
We also fundraise for Amnesty International and support victims of human rights abuses (at home or global) through visits, letters, donations and petitions.
