I got my father back for Christmas

Femi Peters, one of Amnesty International USA's 2010 Write for Rights cases, has been released! In this video, his son, Femi Peters Jr. thanks Amnesty supporters.

Femi Peters is the Campaign Manager for a Gambian political opposition party. The Gambian government, in efforts to stifle political and social dissent, sentenced Femi to a mandatory jail term of one year and a hefty fine.

More than 75,000 people participated in this year's Write for Rights event and generated more than 240,000 letters on behalf of Femi Peters and eleven other cases. This is the kind of remarkable difference we can make when we join together for human rights.
