Ever wondered how effective our campaigns are?
I'm sure you must have wondered just what difference writing a card or letter can make. Well the combined effect can be life changing. The recent Write for Rights campaign where we had two events, one in Bloxham and one in Adderbury library, is a co-ordinated focused campaign to pressure authorities to release prisoners of conscience and to provide support and comfort to those incarcerated.
Last Decembers event was the largest letter writing campaign in Amnestys history.
In December 2013, more than 2.3 million letters, emails, SMS messages, faxes and tweets were sent in the “Write for Rights” campaign, beating last year’s record of 1.9 million actions.
