About this blog

The Urgent Action Network is made up of 150,000 people around the world who are outraged by injustice and prepared to act swiftly at critical moments to stop it.

Urgent action is based on a simple idea: when someone is in immediate danger of serious abuse, the government responsible for perpetrating or failing to prevent that abuse will receive thousands of faxes, telegrams, emails and air-letters from every part of the globe. Those messages tell the authorities that the world is watching, and create pressure to stop the abuse.

We'll update you on Urgent Action cases, good news stories and other interesting facts and information we hear about from our campaigners.  We hope it will persaude you to join the Urgent Action Network!
