HELP BY WRITING A SIMPLE LETTER

WRITE A LETTER AND HELP THE 158 HMONG REFUGEES JAILED AT NONG KHAI IMMIGRATION CENTER

The 158 Hmong refugees being held in deplorable conditions at Nong Khai Immigration and Detention Center in Thailand have done nothing to be jailed for -- except escape from Laos, with its policy of torture, killing, war crimes against children, and attack and pursuit of the jungle Hmong. They have suffered in this jail for more than two years and deserve justice. The countries of Australia, the U.S., Canada, and The Netherlands offered to take them, but Thailand refuses to release them. The letters will serve a dual purpose: To let the refugees know that people all over the world are concerned about them, and to let officials in Thailand and Laos know that the world is watching and we expect justice to be served!
