Today - Amnesty Society bake Sale for Aware.ie

Amnesty Soc will be hosting a bake sale in Smokeys today from 11am to 4pm in aid of Aware.

Aware campaigns to create a society where people who experience depression and related mood disorders, and their families, are understood and supported, are free from stigma and have access to a broad range of support options. For more information please go to http://www.aware.ie/

Amnesty International is the world's biggest human rights organisation, with more than 2.2 million members. Amnesty International is independent of any government, political party, or religion. Amnesty International wants to see a world in which all people enjoy the rights enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and other international human rights standards.

Amnesty Society  NUIG aims to achieve this goal in two main ways:

•By promoting awareness of human rights: primarily throughout the university. Through campaigning on stalls, showing ethical films, heading discussions and bringing in speakers, and hosting social events for the wider community under the Amnesty banner.
•By opposing specific abuses of human rights: through Amnesty's traditional method of writing to the groups responsible for human rights abuses
