Help Amnesty Free Aung San Suu Kyi

Help free Suu Kyi and other high profile human rights defenders during Amnesty International's Global Write-a-thon, the world's largest letter writing event, December 5-13th.

The more letters we send, the better chance we have at setting Aung San Suu Kyi free. Please pledge to write a letter on behalf of Aung San Suu Kyi.

In the days surrounding International Human Rights Day – December 10 – Amnesty's global network of activists will send a tidal wave of letters and postcards on behalf of individuals in danger of severe human rights abuse.

We want to make this the best Write-a-thon ever! Every year, this worldwide event gets bigger and bigger -- and we expect to top all records this time around.

We've seen prisoners freed and lives spared because your letters make things happen! Just last year, Ma Khin Khin Leh, a school teacher in Myanmar and Hana Abdi, a women's rights advocate in Iran, were both released from prison after Write-a-thon letters overwhelmed their respective government offices.

Together, we can bring justice and human rights back to people who need it. Join the Global Write-a-thon today and show the world that when you stand up for human rights, you never stand alone.
