Iroquois Falls will mark International Human Rights Day with a fourth consecutive Amnesty International Write for Rights celebration.

Organizer and Retired Teacher Fran Cote says it is still important today to take a stand for the rights of humans all over the world.

Cote says through the Write for Rights event, people can show solidarity with those whose human rights have been violated both in Canada and across the world.

She says to write these letters are much simpler than most would think.

Cote says holding the Write for Rights event on International Human Rights Day is very appropriate.

She also quoted author Edmund Burke saying forĀ evil to triumph all that is necessary is for good people to do nothing.

Fellow Organizer Zoreena Liznick-Voyer says often people overlook issues that do not affect them personally.

Liznick-Voyer says in order to stop overlooking these issues, it begins with us making an effort.

She says every letter that is written is making a step in the right direction.

The event will be held Sunday, December 10th in the basement of Trinity United Church from 2:00pm to 4:00pm.
