Write for Rights

Amnesty International’s annual ‘Write for Rights’ campaign sends messages to people suffering human rights abuses around the world, showing them that they are not alone.  And in today’s world, a personal message really does stand out.

Canterbury Amnesty would like to say a huge huge thank you to everyone who came along to the fair or meetings to sign our handmade cards – we managed to get two boxes worth of signed cards this year to send to the prisoners of conscience. Thank you!

From children in Malawi hunted for the colour of their skin, to a young man in Cameroon imprisoned for sending a friend a joke text, to a mother imprisoned in Iran and separated from her family in the UK without knowing why – by sending them a greetings card you can help to bring them hope.
