Make the World a Better Place.

IMAGINE A WORLD….

“Men would be able to show affection without being accused”

“I would not be branded because of the clothes I wear”

“Home would be a place of peace”

…WITHOUT VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN


How would you like to star in a unique art exhibition alongside the Guerrilla Girls, Tracey Emin, Marc Quinn, Grayson Perry and Stella Vine?

As part of the exhibition (supporting Amnesty’s International’s work to Stop Violence Against Women) Erasure star VINCE CLARKE and Heaven 17’s MARTYN WARE are asking you to contribute to an interactive sound sculpture.

Phone 020 7033 1599 and leave your response to the question: “What would a world without violence against women be like?”

We want to make people think about how violence against women impacts on their own lives. You don’t have to leave your name, and you don’t have to come up with something profound – just tell us what you think. So please phone today. It takes 30 seconds and your voice could be part of this stunning event.

Many thanks,

Jennifer Campbell

Stop Violence Against Women Campaign Manager

The Imagine a World exhibition is at the Bargehouse, South Bank, London and is open from 10-6pm from 25 November to 11 December. Admission is free. For more information visit amnesty.org.uk/svaw/imagine/exhibition


I also got an Amnesty International snailmail magazine today and in it was an 'urgent update' which explained that Amnesty are starting an investigation into the human rights concerns over the Terrorism Bill, and the thoughts of the British government about allowing people to be returned to countries which use torture. I am so, so glad Amnesty is doing this. I love that they don't shy away from criticising the biggies (USA on violence against women, UK on this, for example).




Demonstration Against Bus Fare Rises in Sheffield

Campaign stalls petitioning against First's latest fare rise have been inundated with angry people wanting to sign. Many say they will come on Saturday's demonstration. Word does seem to be spreading about the protest march, but we need to keep advertising it in whatever way we can to get as many people there as possible.

Assembly is at 11-00 outside the City Hall in Barkers pool.The march moves off at 11-30pm, returning to City Hall for a few speakers to finish it off. It would be useful if campaigners can get there for 10-45 to help organise things.

The TGWU busworkers branch have promised to come on the march and bring their banner. I have spoken at a general meeting of Sheffield Pensioners Action Group(SPAG) today and they are supporting the demo and bringing their banner. Other banners and especially home-made placards will be very welcome.

Terry Fox, Council Cabinet member for Transport, spoke at the last WWOBB campaign meeting. He said that his realistic date for introducing Statutory Quality Bus Contracts (a form of regulation but still with private bus operators) was 2009. In other words 4 more years! He suggested that this could be brought forward if he and the council were put under enough pressure by people like us. Make of that what you will, but we intend to increase the pressure on the council to stand up to First and to the government. This Saturday's demo will be another step in that.

See you Saturday.
