December 2010: Take Action for Human Rights

December 2010: Take Action

Source : Amnesty International

A 38-year old labour activist, Su Su Nway, is serving a sentence of eight and a half years in a remote prison in Myanmar because she put up an anti-government banner in Yangon.

In Mexico, Father Alejandro Solalinde Guerra, is being intimidated by gangs and officials for providing a safe refuge to migrants who are exploited by criminals.

A woman in Senegal, Khady Bassène, is still waiting for justice and to find out what happened to her husband who disappeared in 1999.

These are ordinary people involved in extraordinary struggles and we don’t want to forget them.

Write for Rights

That’s why we participate in Write for Rights. Every year around International Human Rights Day on 10 December, thousands of Amnesty International members and supporters get together. We write letters and sign petitions taking action for individuals facing the risk of human rights violations.

Father Solalinde arrested by municipal police in the town of Ciudad Ixtepec, Oaxaca state, Mexico 10 January 2007. He was then briefly detained with 18 Guatemalan migrants.

Letter-writing works

Igor Sutyagin, who was in prison in Russia for more than 10 years says letter-writing really works. He said,“The officials, they know about these letters. They know that this person is somehow untouchable and I really want to ask you and all Amnesty members to continue that activity because that will help others. I think it’s very, very important.”

Demand that the rights of Su Su Nway, Father Alejandro, Khady Bassene and others are respected.

You can also participate in a letter-writing event. Enthusiastic volunteers have organised events even in countries where we don’t have an office. Click here and browse through the month of December to find out if there is an event happening near you.

We write letters and take action online to demand that the rights of individuals are respected, protected and fulfilled. In doing so, we show solidarity with those suffering human rights abuses and try to bring about real changes to people’s lives.

All stamps

Join the hundreds of thousands of people around the world who will be writing letters and taking action online for 10 days in December. From Belgium to Benin and Switzerland to South Korea, Amnesty International events will take place around the world from 4-14 December 2010, to mark International Human Rights Day.

People will come together to Write for Rights by sending letters, emails, faxes, SMS messages and tweets, and signing petitions. Take action below.

Taking action can make a difference

In July 2010 the Egyptian authorities released Bedouin blogger and activist Musaad Suliman Hassan Hussein, known by his pen name Musaad Abu Fagr. He had been held without charge or trial for almost three years for calling for the rights of Bedouins in the Sinai to be respected.

Bu Dongwei spent over two years in a “Re-education Through Labour” camp in China until his release in July 2008, following campaigning by Amnesty International and others.

We're campaigning on behalf of ten different individuals this year. Take action below.
