Join me in taking up Amnesty International’s Write for Rights 2016 campaign! This is a great opportunity to stand up for those whose most basic rights are under attack.

Please consider taking the time to write either a letter of appeal or a message of solidarity for those victims of human rights abuses, even if you only have time for one.

Amnesty International’s ‘Write for Rights’ campaign highlights 12 cases that they would like you to write on behalf of. These vary from writing to Malawian Government asking them to protect Albinos from being killed and dismembered for their ‘magical’ body parts, to Fomusoh Ivo Feh being sentenced to 10 years imprisonment for forwarding a joke by text in Cameroon.

You can also turn it into a social gathering, either uniting fellow activists or possibly with tasty bribes for the not-so-eager!
