Building a fairer world, post COVID-19

The ten cases selected for Write for Rights 2020 include human rights defenders and individuals in Algeria, Burundi, Chile, Colombia, Malta, Burma, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, South Africa and Turkey.

We are at a crossroads that we can all choose to build a future that decides on its kindness, solidarity, tolerance and human rights. Governments must use this moment to show that they can establish just injustices by freeing prisoners of conscience, ending the persecution of human rights defenders, and upholding the right of every person to freedom of expression.said JulieVerhaar, Acting Secretary General of Amnesty International.

Campaign successes

As seen in previous years, letter writing really makes a difference to individuals whose issues are highlighted in Write to Rights,and alsoprovides tremendous emotional support and encouragement to them and their families.

Nigerian teenagerMosesAkatugbawas arrested and sentenced to death when he was 15 after being charged with stealing three telephones. In 2019, he was released after 800,000 Amnesty International supporters showed their support.

I was in line for death because the police claimed that I stole three phones, says Moisiu. But now I’m free because people like you wrote letters to support me. After eight years in prison and 800,000 letters from Amnesty International supporters worldwide, I was released. Those letters kept my fire burning. I am alive today because of these letters.Soyour letters can save a life.

The power of individual action to save lives and hold governments accountable should never be underestimated. Year after year we see the powerful impact that simply writing a letter or email can have, Julie saidVerhaar.

Background
