Footprints of London walks for Amnesty

Comments Off on Footprints of London walks for Amnesty



On May 28th 1961 The Observer published an article by Peter Benenson called “The Forgotten Prisoners” which called for the release of people around the world who were in prison for peacefully expressing their beliefs. This article led to a campaign called the Appeal for Amnesty 1961 which went on to form the organisation Amnesty International. Fifty two years later Amnesty campaigns for Human rights across the world. Footprints of London are proud to be launching a series of fundraising walks for Amnesty which will focus upon different Human Rights issues that have affected London. The first walk on Amnesty’s birthday sold out, however there are plenty of tickets for the next three.
