Blackhall St. Columba's has been affiliated since 1981 to this worldwide movement independent of any government. Its members within the Church and community form a circle of writers seeking the release of prisoners of conscience, men and women detained for their beliefs, who have neither used nor advocated violence.
Blackhall St. Columba's writers have been much encouraged by the success of some of their letters. New writers are always needed and guidance is offered as to the best methods of approach.
