On: 10th December between 10:00a.m. & 13:00p.m.
In: The Secret Garden café (formerly the Co-op Café. BoA)
Local resident or just visiting, come & join us, writing letters or cards of support & encouragement to men and women around the world whose human rights and freedoms have been denied. Previous Write for Rights sessions, have been very successful, not only giving heart to those whose only crime is to fight for basic human rights, in some cases people wrongfully detained have been freed, threats and harassment against human rights activists have been reduced & lives changed for the better overall. In 2015 thousands of people across the global wrote messages of support for Albert Woodfox – the longest-serving isolated prisoner in the USA. Albert had spent 43 years in solitary confinement. In February this year, Albert was finally freed. People featured in this year’s campaign include Fomoseh Ivo Feh, a young man in Cameroon, who faces 20 years in prison for forwarding a sarcastic text message.
Come and join us – cards, pens & all info. on those wrongly detained provided.
This is likely to be one of the most important letters you’ll ever write. Someone’s life could depend on it – West Wilts Amnesty.
