Use Your Power - why you should respond to an Urgent Action

'Use Your Power' is a short informative video on the workings of an Urgent Action. The video explains in step-by-step how and why an Urgent Action is created and what happens when you take 'action'.

An Urgent Action (UA) is an effective and rapid response to urgent situations involving prisoners of conscience, detainees, and other individuals whose human rights are being imminently threatened.
