Amnesty International’s Global Letter-Writing Marathon

Between 8-9 December 2007, thousands of human rights activists around the world will take part in Amnesty International’s Global Letter-Writing Marathon.

This year’s event looks set to be the biggest yet, with at least 40 countries taking part. The Marathon is held annually to mark the anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, adopted on 10 December 1948.

How you can get involved?

Everyone can participate. It all begins with people just like you taking a few minutes to write a short letter, fax or email on behalf of individuals whose human rights are currently being violated.

You can continue to write appeals for the whole 24 hour period, but you don’t have to; you can contribute by writing just a few letters. Every appeal counts.
