Farmers Market Table, etc

This Sat 10/17, our weekly Human Rights Table will be facilitated by 3 enthusiastic members: Ibrahim (Sudan); Cylvana (US/Phillippines/Sudan); and Yasmine (Morocco).

Amnesty International Table @ the Farmers Market became one of the common activities in Downtown Amherst. It "added more to the diversity of the Market" as noted by one activist who stopped by the table.
Two petitions on the Table find lot of signatures and discussions every Sat: Our adopted POC Karim Amer (Egypt); and the letter to President Obama to hold torturers accountable.

We are planning to continue the table until the end of the Farmers Market (first Sat in Nov)...

Do not forget our Octber monthly meeting @ Jones Library (second Floor) on Sat 10/31 @ 2pm.
The meeting will be devoted for a proposed event to bring together the local Amnesty Chapters in one event.
