Here is my yearly update on the appeal letters I have produced since joining Amnesty International in 2003.
Letters written: 700 (year end projection)
Years Involved: 17
Average letters per year: 41
Most letters written in one year: 72 (2005)
Countries written to: 140
Replies received: 15
Prisoners released: 98
Other actions taken: 33
Top five countries: Canada 60, USA 28, China 23, Colombia 19, Brazil 17
I created a heat map to track distribution of my letters. Canada and the United States are skewed as in the past I sent copy letters to embassies. I believe it is more effective directing concerns to the national government involved.
