Jean Lambert backs Amnesty Christmas card campaign to support human rights prisoners

Main Hall, Hornsey Vale Community Centre, 60 Mayfield Road, Stroud Green
Sunday 13th December 2009 from 3pm to 6.30pm

Justice and Human Rights MEP of the year 2005, and London Green MEP, Jean Lambert, is to attend an Amnesty International Greetings Card signing event at Hornsey Vale Community Centre to highlight the plight of prisoners of conscience, people under sentence of death, and human rights defenders at risk.

Jean Lambert MEP said:

“The simple act of sending these cards offers hope and encouragement to the people who receive them. Personalised international messages can help bring about positive change to a political prisoner’s situation, helping to keep them safe, or even save their life, by making an impression on police, prison staff and political authorities. I would urge people to spare a moment on Sunday 13th December and pop into Hornsey Vale Community Centre to sign a few cards and help make a difference to the lives of those unjustly imprisoned or in danger.”

Local Green Party candidates for Stroud Green, Sarah Cope and Anna Bragga, will be attending the event to add their support to the campaign. There will be mince pies, Christmas cake and the chance to meet others in the community who care about these human rights issues.

The Amnesty Greetings Card Campaign signing event is a joint partnership event organised by Haringey Green Party and Hornsey and Wood Green Amnesty International. Amnesty provides regular updates on individual cases proving that inspiring messages of solidarity can lead to cases being reviewed.
