SCHOOL pupils have learnt more about a global campaign group.

Lord Wandsworth College's (LWC) Amnesty Youth Group presented a talk to Year 7 pupils on the organisation's Write for Rights campaign.

An introduction to Amnesty International was followed by an explanation of Amnesty’s global letter-writing campaign to show support for people around the world who have suffered injustice and whose freedom to speak is under threat.

During the event, pupils created houses to represent the houses lost by the victims in an act of solidarity with Ni Yulan, a civil rights lawyer in China the LWC Amnesty Youth Group has supported.

Jane Mitchell, head of LWC Amnesty Youth Group, said: “The event provided a heartfelt insight into the struggle for basic human rights that exists for many across the world. Pupils showed sensitivity and compassion for a worthy cause.”
