30 Days of Advocacy - Against Witch-Hunts
I've recently learned of the witch hunts occuring in South Africa and felt that I would like to share this information with my followers. Many may already know about this, but here's your chance to do something about it.
The Pagan Rights Alliance offers the following suggestions on what you can do !
∙ Download this International Letter of Protest Download in .pdf / Download in .docx sign your name to the bottom of it, and e-mail it to the South African Human Rights Commission (SAHRC) between March 29 and April 27.
∙ If you use Twitter, please link to http://twitter.com/TouchstoneAdvoc - Touchstone Advocacy will be running a daily campaign around the names of those murdered in South Africa during 2010 (see below) as a result of being accused of witchcraft. Please re-tweet in solidarity and remembrance.
∙ During the campaign, please post your daily campaign activities to Touchstone's campaign wall ... and tell everyone what you're doing. Your inspired actions may inspire others.
∙ Tell people you know about ongoing witch-hunts in Africa and elsewhere - inform them about ongoing human rights abuses they may not have been aware of.
∙ Gather people you know together during this campaign - hold wakes of remembrance - wear black armbands in memory of those who have been murdered because someone accused them of being a Witch.
∙ Light a candle every day during the campaign in memory of the victims past and present, and in solidarity with this campaign.
Thank you for supporting this campaign...

A friend of mine has started up a fund to to help the children of Africa during the 30 day event. If you can take a moment to donate to Mrs B's Help the Children of Africa Fund.
Lighting my candle now.
