Post et håb – Skriv for Liv Café

Nu på søndag fra kl. 14 kan du være med i årets Skriv for Liv Café i Amnesty Aalborg’s lokaler i Danmarksgade 7.

En Skriv for Liv Café tilbyder dig muligheden for at skrive direkte til forskellige politiske autoriteter for at bede dem om at overholde menneskerettigheder eller sende et personligt brev, tegning m.m. til ofrene selv.

Post et håb i Amnesty Aalborg's Skriv for Liv Café'er

Sidste år lykkedes det bl.a. at redde den 16-årige Moses Akatugba, som var dømt til døden for at have stjålet tre mobiltelefoner, hvilket han tilstod efter at have været tortureret af det nigerianske militær og politi:

”The letters I have received give me hope. When I hear about the level of support and everything that is being done for me by Amnesty International, it makes me the happiest man on earth” – Moses Akatugba

I år kan du blandt andet skrive for unge piger, som tvinges ind i ægteskaber i Burkina Faso. Desuden er der sagen om amerikanske Albert Woodfox, som har siddet isolationsfængslet i 40 år og sagen om Yecenia Armenta, som sidder uskyldigt fængslet, efter hun blev udsat for grufuld tortur af politiet i Mexico.

Vi er klar med penne og papir – de behøver dine ord.

LGBTI udstilling i Nordkraft

Drop by at Nordkraft for the next days. The local Amnesty International team from Aalborg has placed an LGBTI exhibition of posters with great, interesting and some what shocking posters of information and facts about the LGBTI people and their rights across the world. Take your friends with you and share the information you learned. The exhibition is there until 20th of August.

Don’t forget, that the local Amnesty International team enjoys its activism and welcomes anyone to join in for making this world a better place to live in.

http://frivillighuset.dk/nyheder/frivillige-danner-menneskekaede-over-limfjordsbroen-d-26-september

Amnesty Aalborg er med, når frivillige for syvende år i træk danner en menneskekæde på Limfjordsbroen fredag den 26. september. Vi mødes i Danmarksgade 7 kl. 14.15 – vær præcis!

Formålet med menneskekæden er at skabe opmærksomhed om det at være frivillig og at give flere lyst til at være frivillige i en af de mange foreninger, der er i byen.

Oppe på broen vil de frivillige tage hinanden i hænderne og skabe en kæde tværs over fjorden, som kan ses af trafikanter på broen og skibene, der sejler unden den.

De mange frivillige mødes på Nørresundby Torv kl. 15 og går mod Limfjordsbroen med Aalborg-garden i spidsen. Herefter fortsætter man til Gammeltorv, hvor der er kaffe og kage og Frivilligprisen uddeles kl. 16.30 af rådmand Mads Duedahl.

Bag arrangementet står Aalborg Frivilligråd.

Social gathering+s !

Since the autumn is coming closer (it seems as if it’s already here !) as it is getting colder, soon colors will change, leaves will fall of…

Therefore I want to invite you all to come to the event I am together with Ditte arranging on Saturday September 20th 2014 @ 1800 GMT+1 hour :

Bring a dish (& drinks) – event where we all bring a dish which we will in the meeting room make a buffet out of ! 😀

I have no idea of how many are actually going to come but I would say its fair to cook for at least for 20 people…right?

Anyways .. see you all sooner than later !
Best wishes, Samira

P.S. We also have a fun movie night event on September 16th also @ 1800 GMT+1 hour !

Vi viser filmen på tirsdag d. 6. maj kl. 19.30 – 21.00 i Danmarksgade 7.
