There are half a million men and women in prisons around the world for the simple crime of disagreeing with their governments.
From South Africa to the Soviet Union, from Brazil to Korea, authoritarian regimes persist in the barbarían practice of jailing, or often torturing, their citizens not for anything they've done, but for what they believe.
These prisoners of conscience have only one hope - that someone outside will care about what is happening to them.
Amnesty International has helped free over 14,000 political prisoners by marshaling world public opinion through international letter-writing campaigns.
Your pen can become a powerful weapon against repression, injustice and inhumanity.
Join with us today in this important effort.
Because if we do not help today's victims, who will help us if we become tomorrow's?
This powerful weapon can help free prisoners of conscience all over the world.
