Send a card to people in detention

At this time of year it’s traditional to send cards to loved ones. It can mean so much to receive a card especially if you are scared about your future.

This is old-school solidarity – not hi-tech or on-line magic – please send a postcard or a Christmas card to these people who Unity are supporting who are currently in detention. To know that someone else is thinking about you when you are locked up is probably the best present (apart from freedom!)  you can give someone.


All it takes is copying the person’s name from the list below onto an envelope or postcard and adding the address of the detention centre they are in. You don’t need to write a huge long message if you don’t want to, or add any personal information but the message will mean more the more personal it is.

[Please note it doesn't really matter if they don't get the letters till after Christmas Day!]

Thank you!
