How you can help Billy
Send a video message of support to Billy’s partner Yvonne via www. facebook.com/thechennai6, simply saying: ‘I support the Chennai six.’ If you do not have the technology, come into The Oban Times office and we can record a message. Join up at one of the four places to get information: www.chennai6. co.uk, www.facebook.com/thechennai6, www.twitter.com/chennai6 and www.change.org/6soldiers. Write to Brendan O’Hara MP, Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson and Prime Minister Theresa May at House of Commons, London, SW1A 0AA. Hold a fundraising event, perhaps a coffee morning or cake sale, at your work with pre-printed letters for colleagues to send to the relevant parliamentarian. Billy will be receiving a free copy of
The Oban Times every week from now until his release and we will run weekly messages of support to him. Send these marked ‘Messages for Billy’ to The Oban Times, Oban, PA34 4HB or email: editor@ obantimes.co.uk. Or send us a photograph of your parcel. Send a letter or a parcel to Billy or one of the other men in prison, to: Office of Superintendent, William Irving, Puzhal Prison, Puzhal 1 Central Prison, Chennai, India, 600066. A 2kg parcel costs £13-£18 to post via the post office. Signedfor deliveries could cause an issue with guards, so just use a standard service. For a list of items that can be sent, see obantimes.co.uk.
