Write for Rights in Lewes – 27th November 2021

Back in the flesh and back in the streets, the Lewes Amnesty Group will be writing letters and cards to prisoners and the people holding them on the 27th of November at the House of Friendship on School HillĀ in Lewes.

This year we are writing in aid of Zhang Zhan, one of the few citizen
journalists to report on COVID-19 in China and was sent to prison for it. We are also writing to Mikita Zalatarou, a teenager sentenced to five years in prison colony for running away from police in Belarus and Panusaya Sithijirawattanakul, facing the possibility of life in prison for protesting against the Thai government.

Come help us. We will need people inside serving hot chocolate and people outside handing out leaflets. For many people, this is the most important thing we do – Amnesty’s core mission of direct contact.
