Take Urgent Action!

Answer the call to defend people under immediate threat of grave human rights abuse. Join hundreds of people across the world who speak up for those who speak out for us all.

What is an Urgent Action?

Amnesty International issues an appeal for Urgent Action when a person is under threat of imminent and grave human rights abuse. Once an Urgent Action is issued, it is sent to Amnesty International supporters across the world who take action by signing the appeal.

Why do Urgent Actions work?

When hundreds of people like you across the world take action, governments and authorities realise that the world is watching them. An international audience that is deeply concerned and vocal about people under threat of human rights abuse creates global pressure, which often helps achieve a positive outcome.
