    Free Ahed Tamimi

    17-year-old Palestinian activist Ahed Tamimi has been called the ‘Rosa Parks of Palestine’. For years, she and her family have bravely stood up against the Israeli occupation of their land. But she now faces up to 10 years in prison over an altercation with Israeli soldiers.

    We need you to take action to call for the release of Ahed Tamimi. Here is how you can get involved:

    1. TAKE ACTION NOW

    Sign and share our action demanding that Ahed be released immediately and unconditionally

    >>SIGN NOW

    2. Organize in your community

    Organise a demonstration in your community or in a public space of relevance. Get your message across - maybe you could consider making a banner, a placard or photo-boards to amplify your messages? Coming together to create a banner, for example, can be a great way to engage people with have different skills and interests in participating in your action.

    Amnesty International Canada will hold its 2017 Human Rights College (HRC) for Youth from May 30th to June 4th, in Calgary, AB.

    The HRC is a three day youth leadership training that takes place just prior to, and is connected with, our AGM. The HRC aims to empower and support young activists within Amnesty to facilitate their active leadership role within Amnesty International's youth program. The HRC will be a mix of skills and learning workshops, along with an opportunity for all participants to have a hands-on experience of testing out their new skills.

    The college directly precedes Amnesty Canada’s Annual General Meeting which all members of the HRC then go on to take part in.

    Applications for the Human Rights College are now being accepted and are due on March 27th.

    If you have any questions regarding the Human Rights College or would like an application, please contact youth@amnesty.ca

    We look forward to seeing you in Calgary!
