Monday, October 2nd will be Amnesty International’s 4th general meeting in GEA 114 from 6:00 PM to 7:00 PM! We will be discussing the detainment of Ola Al-Qaradawy and Hossam Khalaf. These two UT alumni have been held in solitary confinement since July 3rd without a bed, toilet, clean water, or sufficient nutrition. By joining us on Monday you can learn how you can personally make an impact on this case and help Amnesty in its efforts to place Ola and Hossam in humane conditions until a fair trial has been conducted.
On October 11th, Amnesty will be collaborating with Texas Rising to host a town hall style discussion for International Day of the Girl! Join us in the SAC, room 1.106 at 5:30 PM for a discussion about feminist issues on campus. Learn more about sexual assault, gender binary issues, and intersectionality from UT staff and students! (We’ll have FREE Tiff’s Treats too!)
Also, keep an eye out for updates on the March to Abolish the Death Penalty! Amnesty will be attending and marching with other protesters on October 28th, 2 PM at the Texas Capitol. Stay tuned for more information as we get closer to the day of the event!
