City/Town: Zurich
Event Type: Drinks/Bar
Meeting Point: Amber Club, Bahnhofquai 15, Zurich

Dear Friends,

Please join me in a relaxed social event to better our world (or at least try) we are going to write letters and/or sign petitions to put pressure on governments and decision makers around the world to stop human rights abuses.

Yet, the target is also to have fun, meet new people, share some drinks, share ideas, and spread awareness of human rights.
...
Since human rights claims are based outside of political and religious context, I am using the platform of Amnesty International's "Action Appeals'' as targets.

A few issues of focus:
Equality for women in Egypt
Safe housing, clean water, and education for Roma children
End violent evictions of the families in Phnom Penh, Cambodia
Stop supply of weapons to Northern Africa and the Middle East

I will provide sample letters with key points you should make and the contact information of whom we will address these issues. You can either copy or create your own messages and sign whatever statements you agree with. These letters do not need to be long and should take only 10 minutes of your time. Thursday morning I will mail out all our letters.

Bring: Friends

I look forward to meeting with you on Wednesday!

Kind regards,

Angel B

I think it will be quiet, but I don't know for sure, I asked the staff and they said it's quiet at that time.

Basically, I don't know Zurich well so I asked an event manager and after explaining my event that's what he recommended.

I hope you can join!

@ Upthehatters2008

I think this is what Amnesty 80% of the time. Anyway, I was going to write some letters for their causes and thought why not just invite my friends and people in general to do the same with me one fine afternoon.
