CARDIGAN and North Pembrokeshire Amnesty International group will once again be hosting its annual Write for Rights campaign.

Each year in December an invitation is made to anybody who would like to support human rights by writing a letter or a card. This year Write for Rights will be held in Stwdio 3 on Cardigan High Street each Thursday in December (5, 12, 19) from 1.30pm-4.30pm.

A group spokesperson said: “Do something meaningful this Christmas - your letter or card can mean the world to someone struggling to help others.

“We can remind those human rights defenders that they are not alone, and sometimes that reminder is enough to light a candle in the darkness for them.

“This year the focus is on young people; they are our hope for the future, it is vital that we support them and give them courage to carry on in the face of opposition and difficulty. Give up half an hour of your time and join us for Write for Rights 2019.”

All materials and information are provided, everyone is welcome, and if you don’t want to write a letter you can just add your signature to one.

The Amnesty group recently staged ‘Making a Song and Dance of it’ at Rhosygilwen.

An introduction by local poet and writer, Mererid Hopwood was followed by the usual eclectic mix of music, so participants were able to listen, dance and sing, as well as make cards to support defenders of human rights.

More than 150 people attended and enjoyed meeting up with old friends, as well as appreciating the diversity of the acts, which ranged from songs from West Side Story, to the fantastic Tamla Motown of The Hornettes and finally the original material of local band Lundy.

This is the local Amnesty group’s main fundraiser each year, and thanks are also due to Glen Peters, the group patron, who so generously donates his time and the wonderful setting of Rhosygilwen to this cause.
