Happy New Year! What a year 2012 has been. We have seen outstanding courage from people all over the world from individuals like Mala Yousufazi and to peaceful protesters from Syria, Egypt and India, the list is endless! We also saw punk band Pussy Riot participating in protest showing us that freedom was disappearing in Putin’s Russia. We also watched with anticipation for the first ever global arms trade treaty to be enacted as law for it to only be snatched away at the last minute.
We have all worked together with thousands of others around the globe tirelessly putting pressure on the governments, showing solidarity with prisoners of conscience as well as raising money in order to allow Amnesty International to continue their work of raising awareness and campaigning on Human rights.
So here’s to another great year ahead, achieving even more than 2012!! We Brookes Amnesty look forward to seeing you all in Semester 2, to make more noise on campus and to continue raising awareness and campaigning for Human Rights!
In Peace & In Solidarity,
