Edinburgh Central Amnesty Group is a lively, enthusiastic group of ordinary but committed people who are passionate about human rights. We organise events including concerts, pub quizzes, stalls, plays, to raise awareness and funds for Amnesty International. You don't have to know anything about human rights to come along to a meeting; we are a fun sociable group made up of adults of all ages, nationalities, faiths. We also have subgroups which focus on particular campaigns of interest to the group including Women's Rights, Stop Torture, Burma, Death Penalty and Letter Writing. We are friendly and tend to end up in the pub after meetings!
