A display – featuring the views of Diss High School pupils on human rights and what freedom means to them – has gone on show in a town supermarket this week.

The Diss group of Amnesty International has overseen the project, which includes the work of children from Years 7 to 11, as part of its Stop the Rights Raid campaign.

Group secretary Jackie Gooch said: “In July 2019, we spent a week talking to pupils at Diss High School about human rights and what Amnesty International does.

“As part of the Stop the Rights Raid, we thought it was an excellent time to display these thoughts and ideas.”

The art and poetry display can be viewed in Morrisons, in Victoria Road, until tomorrow.

A separate event on the work of Amnesty International will be held at Diss United Reformed Church, in Mere Street, tomorrow, between 10.30am and 12.30pm. Anyone is welcome to attend.
