Please come and join the Castlemaine Amnesty Group for the 20th anniversary of the Write for Rights Campaign.
Each month we get together to write Amnesty’s Urgent Actions and share a meal at the Five Flags Hotel, Campbells Creek, 6-8pm. In December, we always gather for Write for Rights, talk human rights and local news, eat a pub meal and have an end of year drink.
Write for Rights is a moment when Amnesty International’s movement of ten million comes together as one to take action and stand up for freedom, justice and equality.
Every year, Amnesty supporters and activists from 170 countries take action – writing letters, signing petitions, and much more – telling governments to challenge injustice and right wrongs.
Those actions pressure authorities around the world to bring those responsible for human rights abuses to justice, and free people unjustly imprisoned.
Together, our voices are powerful enough to challenge injustice and change the world.
Last year, Amnesty supporters across Australia took more than 185,000 actions.
