Hi everyone,

Hope your Monday is going well so far. Just a quick note to steer you toward a few points of interest…

As some of you may already know, next week is the start of Refugee Week. Between the 18th and 24th of June, there will be a UK-wide programme of arts, cultural and educational events taking place to celebrate the contribution of refugees to the UK. There is a Refugee Week blog that you might find interesting at, as well as several ways in which you can get involved. Check out to see what you can do to take part.

In the run-up to Refugee Week, we are reminded of the continuing crisis in Darfur and the countless numbers of people there who are being forced to flee their homes and livelihoods as refugees. Last week Amnesty launched the ‘Eyes on Darfur’ project. This project is a website for which Satellite cameras have been employed in order for ordinary people (like all of us) to monitor events on the ground in 12 Darfuri villages. The site is and you can find out more about the project from our press release

Lastly, on a more flowery note, our web team have created a very cool animation and screensaver for blogs and websites which we thought you should see. Take a look at it and, if you like what you see, copy and past the code(s) at We think it is rather lovely indeed! Hope you do too and that it will grow its way around the web in no time.

That’s it for today. Until next time…
