Celebrate Human Rights Day by joining the 12-hour writing marathon organised by Amnesty International! Participate in the world’s biggest human rights event!
Saturday, 12th December 2015
By writing lots of letters you can join the world.
By writing lots of letters you can help to stop human rights abuses.
This marathon is not hard.
Just write letters at your own pace, thinking of people suffering overseas:
Burkina Faso: forced to marry even though she is still a child
El Salvador: charged with a murder following a miscarriage
USA: still not released, although all the charges have been dropped
Iran: minors under sentence of death
We have prepared a range of activities for you throughout the day starting from 9 AM. You can make a bangle from an old Sari, write a letter in Spanish, and enjoy a party with a DJ, eating, drinking and dancing to music from all over the world!
You are free to enter and leave anytime, except for the bangle workshop (which needs a reservation in advance).
Invite your friends and relatives and enjoy together!
