The letters are based on Amnesty International’s Real Lives Appeals, issued approximately every three months. However, you don’t have to be an Amnesty member to use the service: anyone can now strike a blow for human rights – all you need is access to the internet. There have been scores of releases of prisoners of conscience etc. over the years and many moving testimonies by released prisoners.

Sending actual letters or faxes is generally considered to be more effective than sending email messages, which are easier to ignore.

It is also sometimes possible to campaign via Social Media or official government websites, and the relevant information is included in the case sheets where appropriate.

Guarantee of satisfation: If you pay online and then subsequently have trouble with the letters for any reason, we’ll reimburse you in full.
