Amnesty International is hosting its 33rd edition of "Schrijf-ze-VRIJdag" (Write-Them-Free/Fri-Day) on Friday, involving over 160,000 students in Flanders and Brussels.

During this event, students write letters advocating for people unjustly imprisoned or facing other injustices worldwide.

Amnesty International emphasized that people globally endure unjust imprisonment, threats, and inhumane treatment. On Schrijf-ze-VRIJdag, individuals worldwide unite to support these individuals, with ongoing letter-writing campaigns throughout the year demanding justice.

The organization highlighted that approximately one in four letter-writing initiatives, on average, contributes to improving someone's life or situation by exerting pressure on governments to act.

Participating schools receive tailored teaching packages to educate students about human rights, fostering a day of action encouraging students to champion and defend human rights for a more just society.

In the current edition, Amnesty International focuses on four individuals, including Ahmadreza Djalali, a Swedish-Iranian scientist sentenced to death in Iran and imprisoned for eight years, and Justyna Wydrzyńska, co-founder of the Abortion Dream Team in Poland, sentenced to eight months of community service for providing abortion pills.

Rocky Myers, facing the death penalty in Alabama, USA, after a suspicious trial, and Maung Sawyeddollah, a Rohingya refugee from Myanmar seeking compensation from Meta for inciting hatred and violence on Facebook, are also subjects of the campaign.

Amnesty International provides sample letters in both Dutch and English to facilitate participation in this impactful initiative. Photo by Dickelbers, Wikimedia commons.
