Different organizations launch a campaign to release all political prisoners whose lives and health are at serious risk due to Coronavirus pandemic.
They propose the following in forming the campaign called “Solidarity keeps us alive”:
- To establish meaningful contact between prisoners, especially women, relatives and supporters and to make the situation and voices of the prisoners heard in society.
- To set up initiatives in all countries to support prisoners and launch petition campaigns against the prison policies of governments.
- To demand the United Nations, Committee for the Prevention of Torture (CPT), Amnesty International (AI) and similar organizations exert political and diplomatic pressure on the states in question, demanding the immediate release of all political prisoners.
The campaign can be supported by additional signatures. Signatures, reports, pictures and information of actions can be sent firstname.lastname@example.org. These will be published on www.solidaritykeepsusalive.org of the campaign, with background information and letters from prisoners.
