Dear Frontline Workers and Human Rights Activists
I am putting pen to paper to give you hope
Hope – something that can never be stolen, snatched or taken away
You have kept going despite unfair conditions and treatment
and we need you to know
Until you’re being treated like the heroes you are, we won’t stop striving for justice, we won’t let go.
Although you have fought to keep people alive, you haven’t been properly protected
and to the human rights activists
There are too many examples of you being punished unconstitutionally, unfairly and unjustly
Frontline workers and Human rights activists like you are the real heroes
You are so much more extraordinary than Spider-Man, Batman or any kind of comic hero
Because in reality, you were not frightened of standing up for others even if that meant putting yourselves in harm’s way
You are the real heroes who save the day
Now it’s our turn to defend the your rights
Now it’s our turn to save the day.
We will keep on striving for justice and campaigning for your rights, safety and rightful recognition
It is our responsibility to maintain this vision
We will keep fighting and campaigning for your rights
Our campaign for justice will grow, it will reach new heights.
Because we are all humans who have rights.
We are with you. Always.
