The Bird Who Sang a New Song tells the story of Little Bird, driven from her idyllic forest location by the threat of deforestation. She sets off on a search for a new home but every animal she asks on the way tells her about some other threat to their homes. Will she be successful in her quest? If you are looking for an engaging story with an important message, then this could be the ideal present. The book, written by Gloria Edwards, with illustrations by Karen Sawrey.


WRITE FOR RIGHTS - JOIN THE WORLD’S BIGGEST HUMAN RIGHTS EVENT


You are invited to join Amnesty International’s annual Write for Rights Campaign, the world’s biggest human rights event. Visit the website or call into Manon’s Wild Zucchini Café on Station Street, Cockermouth, on Saturday morning, the 30th November to sign a card.


WHY?


Imagine being locked away, alone, unfairly imprisoned, or under threat for standing up for what’s right, speaking out for others, or simply because of who you are. Now, imagine receiving a letter from someone you don’t know, telling you they believe in you. That’s what real letters and cards can do. They bring hope to people in the direst of situations. When cards and letters arrive in huge numbers, they are also an unmistakable reminder to the prison authorities and others that the world is watching.


Every December, Amnesty supporters around the world write millions of letters for those whose basic human rights are being attacked. They are people like you, continuing a long tradition of writing letters to right some of the world’s biggest wrongs. It’s not just letters, it could be petitions, emails, tweets, Facebook posts, photographs or postcards.


This year, the focus is on children and young people who are firefighting some of the world’s biggest crises. Many have stepped in, where adults have failed to lead and are facing terrible danger as a result.


ISSUE 437 | 21 NOVEMBER 2019 | 10
