Love is a human right
Yes it’s that time of year again, you know when you’re meant to pull out all the stops and make an effort at love and romance. But, if like me you can’t bear the thought of sitting in a table for two only restaurant, with a crap overpriced set menu and stifled atmosphere then why don’t you cuddle up with your loved one and watch Amnesty’s very own Valentine’s message brought to you by some oh so cute plasticine critters.
Whether you subscribe to Valentine’s Day or not we believe love is a human right and that’s worth celebrating. So, instead of whinging about commercialism, tacky helium balloons and vomit inducing romcoms why not send a card to someone who’ll really appreciate it?
Send a message to the Chinese authorities calling for Hu Jia to be released from prison and renuited with his wife, Zeng Jinyan and their daughter. This young couple have been separated since April purely for speaking about human rights on the internet and to foreign press.
This Valentine’s make sure love wins out. Send a card for Hu Jia and Zeng Jinyan.
