Let Them Stay Week 2014 kicked off yesterday with a flutter on social media. Today we get underway in earnest by writing letters to the editors of local newspapers.
Three ideas for letters are here on the War Resisters Support Campaign website.
An excellent list of email address, along with some tips for writing effective letters, is here, thanks to the good folks fighting for our public health care system.
Your letter might reference one of three events: the 10th anniversary of the first Iraq War resister to arrive in Canada, the recent release from prison of war resister Kimberly Rivera (who served 10 months in prison after the Harper Government forced the Rivera family out of Canada), or the two motions passed in Parliament calling on the government to Let Them Stay. Here are some ideas. Happy writing!
