WRITE FOR RIGHTS 2016 campaign is starting in Ebisu ! Dec. 4th (Sun.)

AITEN event in Ebisu

Our next event will be held in the pub What The Dickens in Ebisu on December 4th (Sunday). (see map below)

From 16:00, we will be writing letters and discussing Human Rights issues to support the global Write For Rights campaign.

There will be an open-mic event in the pub from 18:00, which you are welcome to join as well.

WRITE A LETTER. CHANGE A LIFE.

WRITE FOR RIGHTS is a global Amnesty International’s campaign to mark the International Human Rights day. All over the world, people like YOU and ME gather and spend some time to write letters to

  • prisoners of conscience and opinion
  • oppressed women
  • people from minorities suffering from state-level intolerance
  • people condemned to the death penalty

WE BELIEVE that by sending letters, each one of us has the power to express his/her concerns, raise awareness in the world and eventually enable the release of those prisoners, improve the life conditions of minority and protect each other’s lives. Each year, prisoners are freed thanks to Amnesty’s campaigns and most of all THE INVOLVEMENT OF EVERY ONE OF US.

Here is the list of cases carefully elected by Amnesty International as representing the most actual issues of Human Rights globally:

AITEN MOVIE NIGHT – Nov 3rd (Thursday public holiday) : Where to Invade Next ?

Erratum: the first post said the movie would be Citizen Four (which is also a very interesting documentary that we have shown before) but the actual movie will be Michael Moore’s .

After our first projection of the letter Michael Moore’s movie Where To Invade Next, many persons who could not attend have asked us to show it again. So here it comes, another movie night on November 3rd (Thursday), at  14:30 at Good Heavens, Shimokitazawa (see map below).

Free of charge, we accept donations to Amnesty International Japan ! (and the beer at Good Heavens is great, so come and enjoy the movie !

 

STOP PRESS!! MOVIE NIGHT Oct 10th (public hol)

 Next Monday, October 10th, is a public holiday. We are going to show the Howard Zinn film “You Can’t be Neutral on a Moving Train”, starting 5pm at Good Heavens British pub, a few mins from Shimokitazawa South Exit. (Scroll down to find a map or google it!) Join us for a drink or a meal and a chance to learn more about a historian of great intelligence who clarified the realities of US history & world relations for a generation brought up on an unthinking acceptance of myths.
On Nov 3rd (also a public holiday) we will show the Michael Moore movie “Where to Invade Next”, that we showed before the summer – same time, same place.  More info on that later.
Please tell your friends & acquaintances and post this widely. It will be a really interesting film for sure.

AITEN Meeting – June 28th (Tue), Nakameguro Square

Hello everyone,

Our June meeting was postponed to allow us to go and support the Tokyo LGBT community after the terrible events of Orlando.

Note in your agendas: Tuesday 28th, 19:00

We’ll rehearse the skit that we plan to debut at What the Dickens on July 3rd (Sun). Their open mic event, MC’d by AITEN member Tom, is slated to start at 5pm but there’s usually not much action before 6pm. It will be short & snappy and we plan to involve some members of the audience. However, the more AITEN members there the better so please put it in your diary and make a big effort to be there on the 28th so we can polish the presentation. It’s going to be fun and hopefully reach some people who haven’t heard of AI yet. It could be useful for school and uni groups as a way of introducing AI’s work.

ADDRESS : The venue is new. Nakameguro Square is a community centre that’s a 7-8 minute walk from Nakameguro Station (along Yamate Dori). It will be in Room No 3 and will be listed NOT as AITEN but as Meguro Feldenkrais Group.
