Read WIRE November/December and join the world’s biggest human rights event!

Every year, around Human Rights Day in December, hundreds of thousands of people worldwide send a message to someone they’ve never met. It’s a classic Amnesty technique: 52 years of human rights work show that words really do have the power to change lives.

Last year, activists in at least 77 countries took a record-breaking 1.9 million actions for people at risk of human rights abuses. This December, we’ll do it all again. In this special issue of WIRE, read the powerful stories of the people and communities featured in Write for Rights 2013. Find out how this huge global event works, and how you can join in. And spend a few minutes taking action for somebody else. Together, we’ll be lighting up the world.

    كل عام والمنظمة بخيرورجالها الاشداء فى مجالات حقوق الانسان على مانرجوة لهم.
    للاسف رغم المجهودات الخارقة التى يقوم بها رجال المنظمة والهيئات التابعة لها الاان الانتهاكات تتزايد بصورة مقلقة ومنطقة الشرق الاوسط وافريقيا تقبع على فوهة بركان من الحروب الاهلية والتصفية العرقية والاضطدهاد الدينى.
    وثقافات الحكام لاترقى الى المستوى المطلوب من احترام حقوق الانسان التى كفلتها الاديان والاعراف والمعاهدات الدولية.
    نتمنى ان يأتى العيد القادم وقد خطونا خطوات واسعة فى طريق رفعة الانسانية كلها بغض النظر عن اللون والبلد والعقيدة.

    WIRE is playing a significant role in making people aware of the breaching committed towards humans in this universe. WIRE provides us with most recent violations of human rights all around the globe. We, as members of Amnesty International, try to do the best in helping others by sending messages and raising our voices by protesting against all those who commit their crimes against humanity and calling all those who are responsible to be tried and free all political prisoners.
