Pocket Protest is our SMS Action Network. It's made up of thousands of passionate people who use their mobile phone to defend free speech and stand up for human rights.

How it works 

As soon as we hear of someone in urgent need of your support – an outspoken blogger who has disappeared, a prisoner denied treatment for a life-threatening illness, women's rights campaigners harassed by the police – we'll contact you by SMS (text) message with details of the case.

When you get the message, just text us back to take action instantly.* For instance, we might ask you to add your name to a petition putting pressure on a regime to reveal the whereabouts of someone who has 'disappeared'. This will be no more than once a week and texts are free to receive. 

We'll also text you with updates on the campaigns you took action on, or invite you to get involved with important campaign moments. Occasionally, we may ask you to make a donation by text to support our work.
