AI’s genesis outlined in new documentary

The Kelowna chapter of Amnesty International Kelowna will present the documentary “Amnesty! When They Are All Free,” a film about the history of their organization on its 50th anniversary.

The film will be shown Friday, Sept. 30, 7:30 p.m., at the Okanagan College theatre on the Kelowna campus, 1000 KLO Rd.

Although now the world’s largest human rights organization, with 1.8 million supporters in 80 countries, Amnesty International began very humbly with small groups of passionate and dedicated people writing to dictators all over the world asking for justice and the release of political prisoners.

Admission is by donation.
