The Amnesty Club is comprised of students from a range of backgrounds who work on campus to raise awareness regarding various human rights issues. We are not politically affiliated - rather, we aim to uphold the universal protection of human rights for all people regardless of race, religion, gender, sexuality or political belief. We also believe that it's important to provide a welcoming community in which all students can discuss and learn more about current issues relating to human rights and activism. Some of our recent efforts include campaigning to end torture, defending the rights of refugees and asylum seekers in Australia, as well as speaking out on behalf of prisoners of conscience world-wide.
Our club holds regular meetings during the semester to plan campaigns and discuss current issues. Our activities include running stalls, panel discussions, film nights and letter-writing sessions to name a few. In addition to our own activities, we also often work in partnership with the Amnesty International SA/NT Action Centre and other social justice groups on campus.
