We are the New Forest local group of Amnesty International (AI), a worldwide movement of people who campaign for human rights. Amnesty International aims to promote general awareness of human rights, and to oppose specific abuses of human rights.

Our local group aims to support Amnesty International's work by:

  • Organising meetings to discuss human rights issues and raise awareness
  • Fundraising
  • Writing letters to Prisoners of Conscience and the people responsible for their detention
  • Human rights education and work with young people
  • Working on campaigns on specific issues, organised by Amnesty International
  • Lobbying local MPs and MEPs

Our next event is on Saturday, November 12th at 1pm with a speaker from "Reprieve" discussing "Will We See an End to Capital Punishment in our lifetime?". Please see the poster for more details.

You can have a look at our annual report to see what we've been doing and our newsletter to see what's coming up.

Our meetings are open to the public, please come and join us.
