Where? Cambridge, UK
Recommended by: Jean Sinclair from Cambridge
Amnesty International - one of several largely second hand bookshops run by this human rights organisation, so, it is particularly strong on human rights, social justice etc. Mill Rd in Cambridge is a vibrant street, popular with students and international visitors, with lots of charity shops (Salvation Army sells clothing from British Antarctic Survey, furniture, cutlery & crockery, for example), international food shops, bike shops etc."
The next recommendation from the university town of Cambridge presents a spot which is quite different from ordinary second-hand bookshops. The famous logo depicting a candle in barbed wire is widely recognized as the symbol of one of the leading NGOs in the field of human rights - Amnesty International. What many people especially in continental Europe don't know is that this London based international NGO also runs a small chain of second-hand bookshops to raise awareness about its activities and projects but also to raise some additional funds.
