Happy 4th of July...

The Dynamic Team of 7/2/11 Table

Our Amnesty Table this week was especially interesting...Thanks to coordinating team led by Ismail Farah, Bassil, Aysar, and Cylvanna...

The young team added more fun to the Amherst Farmers Market when they walked around and gave away the popular Amnesty pin "Rights for All" while asking people to stop by the table to sign petitions.

It was a fun and brillinat idea, most impotantly, it came from them. The young Ayssar posted the AI anti-torture sticker on his front shirt while he runs around the Commons in downtown Amherst. "it was fun. Can we come again next week Dad?" Bassil asked his father while they were folding up the table at the end of the day. Many people stopped by to check our new materials and to inquire about the new 3 Petitions (India, Chad, and Erirea). The Team managed to fill one page of each petition in addition to collect $6 of donations.

Special thanks to Ismail Farah, a refugee artist from Sudan, who took the day-off his work to organize the table.

Our next table will be on 7/16 and will be organized by by 2 local members and another 2 International members who will be visiting that week.
