Annelies Varsey: November 2016
This winter we can all support someone whose rights are being abused. It only takes a few minutes to write a card or letter. But for someone jailed for exercising their freedom of speech, a family fighting to defend their land, or a child tortured because of their appearance, they are invaluable. A message of solidarity shows them that they are not alone. Appeal letters from us and millions of other Amnesty supporters around the world force authorities to address human rights violations, cruelty and injustice. They show presidents, justice ministers, police chiefs and prison governors that the world is watching.
