Woodhouse writes for rights

You can write to help someone’s life.
 
Every year, Amnesty International run write for rights, a global letter-writing campaign where over 7 million people show their support for those around the world who have been unfairly imprisoned.
 
Woodhouse Campaigning Plus group are playing their part and they want students to help.
 
Woodhouse student Carmina believes the cause is important because "By raising awareness people can realise that [false imprisonment] is happening everywhere all the time."
 
Carmina and Woodhouse’s campaigners need students to join their campaign. Write for Rights involves sending letters to both those in authority and those who are suffering in prisons around the world to call for their freedom and show support for the prisoners.
 
Each year the letter writing has made a difference to many, such as Phyoe Aung from Burma, who was arrested after a protest against a new education law. she was freed in April 2016, after the pressure put on authority by Amnesty through the writes for right campaign.
 
Woodhouse campaigners want you to "take a little bit out of your time to write one letter which will dramatically help, because the more people on board, the more support the prisoners have, the more of a difference it can make." states Carmina. She is writing for Ni Yulan, a housing rights activist from China, who has been beaten several times and is under constant surveillance by the government.
 
The group has created a place in the social area where a postbox is ready for your letters, templates are made available to help you structure your letter and members of the group are ready for any questions you may have from the 13th of December in room 5.
