Public Meeting: Can Human Rights Survive?

Peace and Progress | 22.08.2007 22:03 | Repression | Terror War | Sheffield

The war on terror has had many victims, many of them unseen, some of them here at home.

This is an opportunity to examine the consequences that the war on terror has had on our Communities, Families and the Rule of Law.

The speakers are Stephanie Harrison, a Human Rights Lawyer dealing with those targetted by the anti terrorist legislation; Emma Henney, volunteer with Hhugs and Mohammed Abdulmalik, president of Libya Watch, a Human Rights Organisation.

As well as discussing how the "war on terror" is destroying human rights, the meeting will have an opportunity to hear about, and raise money to support, the work of Helping Households Under Great Stress:

HHugs was set up by British Muslims in response to the new Anti-Terror Legislation. We provide support and advice to households affected by this legislation

The meeting will be held on Saturday Sept 1st at the Quaker Meeting House, on St James Street from 2- 4pm, we hope to see you there.

Please forward this invitation to those who you think would be interested.
