2019: Prisoners for Peace Day
1st December, Sunday, is Prisoners for Peace Day. For over sixty years on this day, we've been sharing stories and contacts details of conscientious objectors and activists for peace who have been imprisoned for their refusal to take up arms and resist war.
Also, on this Prisoners for Peace Day, we feature APOCS Net's work and encourage our followers to write to Ambazonian prisoners of conscience. Read here the call for support from APOCS Net explaining their work and encouraging everyone to stand in solidarity with, and write to, Ambazonian prisoners of conscience.
Please set aside time on 1st December to write to those imprisoned for their peace work, and get your friends, peace group, student, faith or community group to organise a card-writing session;
Get postcards made up, leaving space for individual messages of support, and set up a street stall around Prisoners for Peace day;
Use #PfPday19 on social media to invite others to write to those in jail.
If you have details of other prisoners for peace not yet listed, please write to firstname.lastname@example.org.
