Write for Rights - join us at our card signing sessions
Every year the Ealing Amnesty International Group host card signing sessions for the Write for Rights campaign.
Around the world, there are people being denied their human rights. During these sessions we send personal messages to the authorities to speak up for them, and write to the individuals to let them know they're not alone.
This year we are hosting 3 card signing sessions - please do feel free to join us:
- Sunday 30th November: 14:30-16:30 at Piccolo Italia (21 The Green, Ealing, W5 5DA)
- Saturday 6th December: 14:30-16:30 at Piccolo Italia (21 The Green, Ealing, W5 5DA)
- Wednesday 10th December: 14:00-16:00 at Creperie Cila (111-113 Northfield Avenue, Ealing, W13 9QR)
About Write for Rights
It only takes a few minutes to write a card or letter. But this simple act brings hope and comfort to people suffering human rights abuses. For a prisoner wrongly detained, for families waiting for news of a relative who has ‘disappeared’, for survivors of abuse fighting for justice, messages of solidarity are a source of strength and inspiration. Letters can pressure the authorities to address cruelty and injustice. Presidents, police chiefs and prison governors take note when they receive appeals to release a prisoner, stop the harassment of an activist or change an unjust law.
