Write For Rights event 2012
For over 50 years Amnesty International members have been writing in support of prisoners of conscience throughout the world. Following on from last year's Write for Rights event the Bristol Amnesty Group will be holding another similar event where members of the public can follow this fine tradition.
The event will be taking place on Saturday 8 December @ the Bristol Central Library Foyer between 9.30 am - 4.00 pm. There will also be a photographic exhibition on forced evictions and human rights related books available to lend from the library.
"After reading some of the thousands of letters, cards and messages sent to me by Amnesty supporters, I began to hope that I would soon be free."
