The New Statesman Christmas campaign

We're supporting Amnesty's Write for Rights campaign.

By Caroline Crampton

This December, the New Statesman online is supporting Amnesty’s Write For Rights campaign, and encouraging you to do the same.

The campaign is simple – show your support for those suffering human rights abuses around the world by sending a personal message or letter. It may seem like a small thing, but it can really make a difference for those who have been starved of contact with loved ones:

Each week between now and Christmas, Eulette Ewart from Amnesty will be writing a short piece profiling a particular individual or group that the New Statesman particularly urges you to support. You can read the first instalment, about Russian punk rock protestors Pussy Riot, here. The whole series will be available here.
