Long Road Amnesty International Group marks International Human Rights Day

Posted on

DSC_0480To mark International Human Rights Day today (10th December), Anita Bahari, January Harris-Hercules and Dorna Zarei from the Long Road Amnesty International Group set up a stall and cake sale in Recept…ion. They highlighted two cases: one of a Japanese man, Hakamada Iwai, who has been in prison for 45 years for murders which new evidence shows he didn’t commit – but no retrial has been set – and the other of the plight of midwives in Hungary, Lithuania and the Czech Republic who were imprisoned for assisting at home births while these were illegal, but who remain in prison even though they have now been legalised. Long Road students were invited to sign a petition to give to the relevant embassies.
