Urgent Actions
Act Now!

An URGENT ACTION APPEAL consists in supporting the case of an actual or potential human rights’ violation by sending letters of objection to duty holders and relevant responsible authorities, in order to pressure them to take remedial action in the form of providing reprieve, relief, compensation, and restitution for their actions or to prevent a potential human rights violation from taking place, and to ultimately change their policies to respect, fulfill and promote human rights.

Are you a local organization seeking to try another way to defend housing and land rights? You can find a methodology to write an Urgent Action appeal by yourself Click here.

An OPEN LETTER is a letter of concern that we, as HLRN, send to relevant authorities regarding adverse practices, future projects that would result in housing and land rights violations, or policies that we want to condemn.

Are you an organization or an individual who wants to put the word solidarity into action? You can find here all the cases—urgent appeals and open letters—that HLRN jointly issues with its members and partners, and which you can support by sending your protest letter TODAY.

The entire HLRN network maintains one URGENT ACTION list. To see our current active cases, CLICK HERE.
