Iran - Stop Execution - Email Action

Amnesty International, UK, 7-23-2021.

International pressure can help - it has delayed executions before. We need as many people as possible to email the Iranian embassy in the UK calling on them to ensure the executions of Hossein and Arman are immediately halted. 

Send email now

Hossein and Arman were just 17 when they were arrested. Hossein was interrogated for 11 days and denied access to a lawyer. Arman says he was held in solitary confinement and beaten regularly. 

Both say their convictions rely on ‘confessions’ obtained under torture and there are serious concerns about their trials. 

Their death sentences are due to be carried out imminently - we must act now.

Amnesty International, Australia, 7-14-2021.

Another year locked up. Another year of missed moments with her young daughter.


British-Iranian mother Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe was recently sentenced to another year in prison in Iran, after having already served an unfair five-year sentence.


We’ve been working closely with Nazanin’s husband Richard to fight for her release since she was imprisoned on trumped-up charges in 2016.


Just after she was sentenced, Nazanin’s daughter Gabriele celebrated her seventh birthday. Richard told us “It’s the sixth birthday in a row where she’s been separated from Nazanin. We’ve all been left hanging for too long.” 


Will you support Nazanin and her family in their campaign to get her home?

EGYPT: Twelve Men At Risk for Execution - URGENT ACTION

Amnesty International, US, 7-9-2021.

Twelve death row prisoners are at imminent risk of execution after Egypt’s highest appeals court, the Court of Cassation, upheld their death sentences June 14, 2021 following a grossly unfair mass trial. 

They were convicted and sentenced to death for their involvement in protests related to the ouster of former president Mohamed Morsi from power in July 2013. Their death sentences must be commuted immediately.

Amnesty International, USA, 7-4-2021.

Congolese human rights activists, Alexandre Ibacka Dzabana and Christ Dongui, are being arbitrary detained in connection to their human rights work and criticism of the government. 

In March, they were both arrested in front of their house by unidentified men, forced into vehicles and taken to the Central Intelligence and Documentation Center. 

They were eventually presented to a prosecutor and charged with breach of State security and sent to Brazzaville central prison where they remain held in pre-trial detention solely for peacefully exercising their human rights. 

They must be immediately and unconditionally released.

CHINA: Tibetan Monk Jailed for Online Messages - URGENT ACTION

Amnesty International, USA, 7-1-2021.

Tibetan monk Rinchen Tsultrim was sentenced to four years and six months in prison in March 2020 without a fair trial. 

His family members only learned of the sentencing a year later when they were officially informed he was being held in an unnamed prison in Chengdu, Sichuan Province. 

No other information about his condition or even the charges against Tsultrim Rinchen have been shared to date. His family believes he has been imprisoned for expressing political views on his WeChat account and personal website. 



Saudi Arabia: Nassima Released - Good NEWS!

Amnesty International, UK, 6-30-2021.

Nassima al-Sada, a women’s rights defender imprisoned in Saudi Arabia, was released on 27 June 2021. 


Nassima bravely campaigned for an end to the male guardianship system and the driving ban on women. For this, she was sentenced to five years in prison and five years travel ban, backdating to when she was first arrested in July 2018. With two years suspension, Nassima was finally released earlier this month. The travel ban still stands, and we will continue to call on the Saudi government to lift it with immediate effect.
