What is an Urgent Action?
When an individual is in immediate danger as a result of the violation of a basic human right, Amnesty International can launch an Urgent Action to protect them. The massive number of appeals from concerned people around the world enable us to put pressure on authorities and help us to hold them to account.
The Amnesty SOS app is free to download and use (data charges may apply). Currently it is available only for iPhone/iPod/iPad. We are working to develop an Android version which will be ready to launch shortly. Watch this space!
