It is important in campaigning not to ignore the simple things. A letter to your MP and others can make a difference. It is though important not to be fobbed off by a lousy reply and where necessary to write back to them. If you allow anger to turn to apathy you haven’t a chance. Amnesty activists have seen prisoners released and policies changed because they chose to write a letter so it can work.
