The Dumbarton & Lomond Amnesty Group was founded in 1971 by veteran human rights activist Mrs Elizabeth Burnett. We cover Helensburgh, Dumbarton and the Vale of Leven.

The Group has supported several Prisoners of Conscience, the most recent being Ngwang Sangdrol, a Tibetan nun, Khamtanh Phousy, from Laos, both released from prison. Amnesty is concerned about China as attention turns to the Olympics.

Action taken by us includes letters, petitions, concerts, work with teachers – and cooperation with THE SONS at a match in 2006 to support Ma Khin Khin Leh, a teacher in Burma who is serving a life sentence because of the peaceful political activities of her husband.

The Group produced the first Amnesty flag, an Amnesty tartan, and has active support from West Dunbartonshire Council. There are two sub-groups, one at Bonhill Parish Church, and the other for WDC employees.

We hold monthly meetings. We welcome both new members and those who can help occasionally. Email: dandlamnestyATgooglemailDOTcom or visit
