First off, thank you — recently you took action online demanding the release of Jabbar Savalan, an Azerbaijani student jailed because he called for a protest on Facebook.
More than 35,000 dedicated supporters like you have already signed Amnesty International USA’s petition to “Dislike” this injustice. In early December we will gather together all these signatures and hand-deliver our powerful message to representatives of Azerbajian’s government: The world is watching, waiting expectantly for Jabbar’s freedom.
I hope that you are ready to go one step further, because we need your support once again. Saturday, December 3rd, marks the beginning of Write for Rights, Amnesty’s global Write-a-thon. We have a big goal — to generate more than 250,000 hand-written letters in support of 15 human rights cases, including Jabbar’s.
It’s the world’s largest human rights event. You don’t want to miss it. And more letters — your letters — mean more impact.
