Wire Magazine October-December 2015: Unbreakable Spirit
This December, millions of Amnesty supporters worldwide will use their words to defend human rights as part of Write for Rights, our global letter-writing marathon. Together, we want to free Albert Woodfox, who has spent more than 40 years in solitary confinement in the USA (p. 16). We want to find Rania Alabbasi, a Syrian dentist who disappeared with her six children after being seized by security officers (p. 6). And we want the charges dropped against Zunar, a Malaysian cartoonist who spoke out against the jailing of an opposition leader (page 27). Their stories, and the many others featured in our campaign, show how human rights and free are under threat worldwide as governments crack down on dissent. And that’s why we need events like Write for Rights more than ever. Join us!
