Write for Rights with Amnesty International

Will you join the world's largest letter-writing campaign? December 10 is International Human Rights Day. Write a card or letter against injustice and join forces with millions of others.

This is the chance to join forces and take action along with millions of others. You are invited by Amnesty International to come to one of the two locations in Tilburg to write a letter against injustice, oppression and the violation of Human Rights

While we live here in freedom and have the privilege to get ready for the winter and holiday season, there are thousands of people who are still victims of oppression and political violence. This is exactly where we can make a difference by joining Amnesty International in writing letters! 

What is Amnesty's mission?

"To work to fight injustice, to give new hope to people who are in trouble, to make people in Tilburg aware of the importance of human rights, and thus to contribute a little bit to a better world." - Amnesty Working Group Tilburg

Why is writing important?

"We support people who have been wronged by sending them greeting cards. We write letters to authorities of different countries to put pressure on them. Writing really helps. In recent years, as a result of the writing campaigns, dozens of people were released, court cases were reopened and people under threat were given protection. Previously, we took action for environmental activist Jani Silva from Colombia. She was seriously threatened and let us know: 'From the bottom of my heart I say that I am still alive because of this action. It has stopped my threats from killing me because they know you are there.'" - Amnesty Working Group Tilburg 

Will you also come and support this wonderful cause at the following locations?

10:00 - 13:00 - LocHal, Burgemeester Brokxlaan 1000
14:00 - 17:00 Bookstore Gianotten Mutsaers, Emmapassage 17
