We are the Glasgow University Amnesty International student group.
Glasgow University Amnesty International society is part of Amnesty International: the global human rights group with the purpose of protecting individuals wherever justice, fairness, freedom and truth are denied. We usually meet on Tuesdays at 5-6pm to discuss current human rights issues, host talks, and collaborate with various activist societies.
We are proud to have raised £597.65 in 2021/22 to help protect human rights around the world. Our exciting fundraisers include charity clothing sales, pub quizzes with raffle prizes, bake sales, and much more. Last academic year, our interactive events covered a wide range of issues, such as Rohingya refugees, press freedom, defending the right to asylum in the UK, climate justice, lethal autonomous weapons, and many more. We are also honoured to have received the Glasgow University Club or Society Activism Award at the 2022 SRC Volunteering Clubs & Societies Awards ceremony.
We are looking forward to meeting you in September 2023!
