Amnesty International


We are the Southampton University Affiliated Amnesty International Student group. We aim to promote the protection of human rights, we do this through large fundraising events and smaller student-led events.

Amnesty is an organisation that campaigns for freedom, fairness and justice, always by non-violent means..

This society aims to campaign against oppression, persecution and injustice. However, passionate, it is a relaxed society open to new ideas and welcomes anyone interested to join!

We meet weekly and our meetings usually consist of brainstorming new ways to fundraise for our chosen topics through stalls on the redbrick/bake sales/guest speakers, sleep outs and more! Past issues we have covered include; refugees, stop torture, the arms trade, LGBT+ rights and women's rights.

Safe space policy:
Our society is committed to creating a safe, tolerant, and inclusive environment. We encourage debate and expect all members to be able to discuss (non harmful) conflicting viewpoints respectfully. All members should use appropriate and respectful language when speaking, and respect others’ point of view when listening.

Political, Social Awareness & Campaigns

We run weekly debates which are free to attend and open to everyone. In the last year we have had the pleasure of welcoming several high profile speakers to these events, including former MP and Government Minister Sir Vince Cable, Spokesperson for the Israeli Embassy Yiftah Curiel and leader of the Liberal Democrats Tim Farron. We also run training sessions to educate people in debating, improve their skills at public speaking and formulating arguments, and prepare them for inter-university competitions.
