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.
Union Films is your student-run cinema, right at the heart of Highfield Campus. Located in the Union, we're completely run by volunteers; from the from the front of house staff who sell tickets and refreshments, to the projectionists who show the films on our 35mm and digital projectors. You can help out as much or as little as you like, and when you do, you get to see films for free!
