On Wednesday, December 10th, Barrie Central held an Amnesty International Write for Rights event in the library at lunchtime. December 10th was International Human Rights Day, and our event was one of hundreds around the world in which volunteers wrote letters to help bring attention to human rights. Many of the Central volunteers were from the Social Justice Club, and we had a special guest as well: Doreen Fernandez from Amnesty International Canada. Our letter-writing volunteers wrote to government leaders both in Canada and around the world. More than 70 letters were written by the Central group; the largest group of which were addressed to Prime Minister Stephen Harper, asking him to start an inquiry into the deaths and disappearances of more than 1,100 First Nations women here in Canada.
