Speak Right Now: Amnesty International Writing Campaign in Ghent

Share it:
To celebrate the 70th birthday of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, Fedactio launched its project Speak Right Now, with events in defense of human rights across the whole of Belgium. Below, you will find the report of one of the events in Ghent. 

Amnesty’s annual global letter-writing campaign ran this year. The Fedactio-team in Ghent joined the campaign and wrote letters to change someone’s life. We received a package of letters and postcards from Amnesty. Friday 7th of December, we got to work in our offices in the Kartuizerlaan in Ghent. Women and men of all ages (between 10 and 70 years old) from many cultural backgrounds got together and wrote letters. By participating in the writing session, they supported Amnesty International in their battle against Human Rights infringements. Our participants had a clear goal in mind: breaking last year’s record of the number of letters. In total, they wrote over 115 letters. Hopefully, we sent a clear message that every infringement is one too many!
