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.

Please note the 2011 National Conference & AGM takes place on the weekend of 6-8 May at Queen’s University, Belfast.
This year’s annual Amnesty International UK Conference and AGM will be on the 9th to 11th April at the University of Warwick with the booking deadline being 12th March. From past experience I have found it inspiring and informative with lots of opportunities to meet other activists from across the country. With it being held locally I would like to encourage as many activists to go as possible and would highlight the concessionary places available for local an student group members. Highlights this year include speakers from Brazil, South Africa & India as well as keynote speaker John Kampfner, Chief Executive, Index on Censorship. For me the best speeches are from those people who have been supported by Amnesty and they demonstrate to me the importance and effectiveness of our work. To find out more go to www.amnesty.org.uk/agm
