Európa Kiadó May 28-29-30.:
AIHU participated mostly on the first two days of this event with a human rights gallery and the petition
for the Anti-discrimination directive. 8 activists and the office staff and interns helped our work during
these two days. We collected 180 signatures for the Anti-discrimination Directive and we now have 4 new
activists. These two days were spent with a lot of work, but in a good mood. We would like to thank
everyone, who helped us!
On May 22, Dorisz Takács held an activist training in AI Hungary's office. During the training, the
participants learned about human rights, the history, operations and structure of AI, and prepared for the
Europa Kiadó weekend. We would like to hold trainings at regular intervals.
During the last two weeks, we had 8 new activists joining Amnesty International. Welcome to the team!
Football World Cup:
Amnesty International is starting a letter writing marathon titled “Stand Up United,” in time for the World
Cup. We are looking to get signatures for 11 human rights defender's petitions, who are persecuted in
their own country for the work they do. AIHU, together with Foci Mozi, will be campaigning on Szabadság
square during the world cup, where those interested can sign the petitions and try our human rights
We are looking for activists for this event. Please apply at firstname.lastname@example.org!
We registered with two round table discussions at the Civil Stage; “Lawless!”, and “Gay rights, visibility,
Prides”. Our application will be evaluated within the next two weeks. Hopefully we will not only have a
stand on Sziget, but we will be able to hold our discussions too.
We will soon know, how many free passes we can supply for our activists.
We have an activist meet-up every Friday from 6 PM at Gödör, to discuss current events, programmes, to
talk about human rights issues, about Amnesty and to get to know each other. You too are welcome!
