“Thank you for all the support you have shown me since 20 November 2020, which also happens to be the birthday of my youngest, born four months after my arrest.
Amnesty International really does have a positive impact. Their support has made me come out of prison even more committed to defending human rights.”
“I was about to be executed, but then 800,000 letters from Amnesty Supporters all over the world were sent to support me. Thanks to those letters, authorities decided to release me. These letters saved my life.”
“I want to thank everyone who supported me and who supported the prisoner of conscience because your support is essential for all of us”.

“I am so, so happy. I still can’t believe it. I thought I was alone in this world. I thought it wasn’t worth it to keep fighting. And then I realised that there were good people around the world, who I didn’t even know, very good people who have been very supportive”.
“I am grateful for all the support and solidarity from so many of Amnesty International’s activists who care about our rights despite being from another country.”
