Write Letters on Behalf of Laura and Euna

Here we go. Amnesty International has posted the letter writing option on behalf of Laura Ling and Euna Lee. If you have time, please print out this letter and mail it to Washington—going to the Embassy of the People’s Republic of China. This is a very simple act that could change the lives of two innocent young women. I will send my (first!) letter later today.

According to AI the reason we’re writing to the Chinese embassy: Urge China, which is the major provider of energy and food to North Korea, and which has considerable leverage on the regime in Pyongyang, to call for the release of the two journalists.

I’m going to do some more research and see if I can’t find an address where we can write Al Gore—encouraging him to speak publicly about the incident and asking him to (literally) go get the girls. I know I’m making it sound easier than it really is.

Also, for you Twitter folk, you can find frequent updates on the situation by following @LiberateLaura.
