Welcome to 2009

It has been strange wishing people a happy new year with the thoughts of Gaza in my head...I guess it is a strong reminder for why we need to continue to work to defend and protect human rights. If you haven't taken action you do so here.

This year I am going to try to add in the occasional personal blog with what is happening in the Sydney Action Centre as well as including information about what you need to know as a convenor, activist, supporter or volunteer for Amnesty in NSW.

I am also going to try to encourage others to blog on this site (members of the NSW Branch Committee, other staff - Ruby, Deb and Shirley, and action centre volunteers) to make it more informative and interactive.

So stay tuned for more regular posts from a range of people in 2009!


PS - We will also be doing a 'How to use the blog to stay in touch guide' for everyone to help explain what blogs are and how you can get automatic alerts when they are updated.
