    Dear Sirs,

    On behalf of the Council of Europe, the oldest European Organization protecting human rights, I would like to inform you about the following development. We would greatly appreciate if you could post this information on your widely visited website “” to help us promote the event.

    Facebook page – 60 years of the European Convention on Human Rights
    Let’s share about the European Convention on Human Rights’ impact on Europeans everyday lives, its achievements and shortcomings. Let’s debate about how we perceive our rights to life, liberty, security, a fair trial, family life and freedom of conscience, religion and expression.

    By becoming a fan of Convention’s Facebook page, you will have the opportunity to view topical movies, access pictures, leave comments on the wall, get to know with numerous multimedia resources as posters, animated brochures and podcasts, follow discussions and keep up to date with the latest events! Last but no means least, here you can get in touch with human rights supporters from all around Europe.
    Our rights, our freedoms – Our Convention on Facebook – see you there!

    With kind regards,
