This spring, the Norwich Amnesty group has lined up an excellent trio of films to be screened at Cinema City as part of our film season.
We’ve selected films that pull no punches about the abuses to human rights that have occurred in the past and remind us that today human rights have never been more threatened.

//////////////////////////////////////////////////////
Book your tickets today:
https://www.ourscreen.com/profile/helen.m29.
\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\

In order for each of these screenings to go ahead, we need to sell a minimum of 22 tickets per film by ten days before each screening.

So if you’d like to come along to any or all of these films, please be sure to book your tickets as soon as possible at: https://www.ourscreen.com/profile/helen.m29.

Care4Calais Collection
Saturday 9th December
11.00 - 13.00

Lloyds Bank/Norwich Market on Gentleman's Walk

Over 3,000 refugees are currently sleeping rough in Northern France, and temperatures are rapidly dropping.
There are minors as young as 13, and they have no access to clean clothes, water or shelter.

So this holiday season our goal is to provide each and every one of these refugees with a warm winter coat.

To do this we URGENTLY need your help.
We are asking each of you to look in your cupboards for a winter coat that you no longer wear and bring it to the collection point on Saturday.

Thank you

Norwich Amnesty on behalf of
Care4Calais

From the worsening plight of refugees around the world to mass unlawful killings, from the vicious crackdowns on dissenting voices to the rise of hate speech across Europe and the USA, the world in 2016 became a darker and more unstable place.

Our annual report, The State of the World’s Human Rights, warns that an ‘us v them’ climate of blame, hate and fear is undermining the very foundations of universal human rights in 2016.

The Norfolk & Norwich Festival are looking for local people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities to be participants in an unique interactive performance ‘We meet in paradise’ by Berlin-based artists TheatreFragile, part of Norfolk & Norwich Festival 2017.

The Norfolk & Norwich Festival want to bring unheard voices to the centre of this interactive performance that poetically presents the complex issues of exile.

- Are you or have you been a refugee or asylum seeker?
- Do you or have you worked closely with refugees?
- Are you interested in the performing arts and storytelling?

Members of Norwich Amnesty joined other Amnesty groups and a wide range of individuals and groups on Saturday 17th September for the “Refugees Welcome” March in London.

It was a great event, with a wide range of participants, all showing that Britain is a welcoming place for Refugees and hopefully sending a message to the government to do their part in accepting Refugees from the huge number currently living in camps across Europe after making life threatening journeys from their home countries to try for a better life.
