Just over 500 activists and staff met at Warwick University for our 2010 AGM and National Conference on 9-11 April. We had an inspiring three days of debates, workshops and presentations. The AGM debated resolutions on prostitution, climate change, the papal visit to the UK later this year, Roma communities in Europe, Papua, strategic directions for Amnesty UK and many other issues.

This weekend i’m at th Amnesty International UK Conference and AGM. In order to give you an idea of what goes on here and update you on what Amnesty is up to I will be blogging on here and tweeting from www.twitter.com/wmai
Today i’ve been at the Regional Forum which is where the regional reps discuss what is going on in the local groups in their regions and feed back on the developments and policies of the AI UK section. We’ve been discussing the local groups strategy, how training should be developed and looking at resolutions for the conference. What is fantastic are the amazing work that Amnesty groups do and the amazing initiatives that go on. It will be great to hear directly from activists what they’ve been up to and meet the many friends I’ve made at past events.
If you are at the conference and reading this post do leave a comment.
