Wire Magazine October - December 2017
Amnesty International’s annual letter-writing marathon is part of our global Write for Rights campaign. It’s in its 15th year this December when millions of Amnesty supporters will use the power of their words to defend human rights. We’ll be sending our personal messages to support the work of human rights defenders from Bangladesh, Chad, China, Egypt, Finland, Honduras, Israel/Occupied Palestinian Territories, Jamaica, Madagascar and Turkey. These rights defenders are speaking up to authorities, defending housing rights and the environment, campaigning for the disappeared, and supporting LGBTI rights, among other issues. In the face of increasing instability and uncertainty around the world, it is ever more important that we come together, support each other, and take action to show that we believe a more just world is possible.
