Amnesty in govt Xmas card drive

Amnesty International is giving its annual Greetings Card Campaign an online twist this year.

The human rights group is asking people to send an e-greetings card to foreign governments to highlight the plight of political prisoners such as Chinese journalist Shi Tao.

Tao is serving a ten-year sentence for ‘illegally providing state secrets to foreign entities'.

Amnesty is asking people to post their support on message boards such as Yahoo!. The campaign will help promote its initiative.
