#DearCatalonia

A letter writing campaign for the Catalan political prisoners

Act now! Write letters to the Catalan politicians and civic movement activists who have been imprisoned for their political beliefs or actions.

  1. Copy the addresses listed here and send the prisoners some correspondence of support during their incarceration.
  2. Your name and address should be visible on the outside to ensure that the correspondence reaches the prisoners.
  3. Share your participation in this campaign on social media (with pictures if possible) with the hashtag #DearCatalonia.

Addresses updated after 9 CDR activists detained on 23 September 2019, with 7 then transferred to a Madrid prison on 26 September 2019 to be held in “preventative custody” awaiting trial.
