Le Azioni Urgenti

Il programma Azioni Urgenti ha lo scopo di salvare persone che vivono situazioni di emergenza per quanto riguarda i Diritti Umani. Si tratta di un metodo di risposta rapida realizzato per proteggere individui la cui vita o integrità fisica è in pericolo.

CHI CERCHIAMO DI AIUTARE ?

Le Azioni Urgenti sono utilizzate per salvare prigionieri che vengono torturati o che corrono il rischio di esserlo, che hanno bisogno di cure mediche o che rischiano l’esecuzione capitale immediata. Vengono attivate nei momenti critici dei processi per tutelare prigionieri politici da trattamenti iniqui, per ritrovare persone “scomparse”, per aiutare richiedenti asilo che, se rinviati al loro paese, rischiano di subire violazioni dei Diritti Umani.

COME FUNZIONA IL SISTEMA AZIONI URGENTI

La velocità è vitale. Amnesty International, rilasciando un’Azione Urgente, attiva una rete mondiale di attivisti che inviano messaggi in tempo reale al Governo target. La scheda dell’Azione Urgente contiene tutte le informazioni necessarie: la situazione dettagliata, il testo consigliato per l’appello, gli indirizzi ai quali inviare l’appello e il tempo limite entro il quale concludere l’azione. Sovente si tratta di indirizzi mail e quindi il processo di invio è semplice, economico e richiede un tempo minimo.

COSA PUOI FARE

Su questa pagina, qui di seguito, puoi trovare alcune Azioni Urgenti rilasciate in questi giorni dalla nostra Organizzazione. Partecipa anche tu: leggi le informazioni e poi invia l’appello. Avvisaci tempestivamente con una mail nel caso ti pervenisse una risposta dalle autorità target.

SCRIVI UNA LETTERA, SALVA UNA VITA


IRAN: Javad Rouhi, Mehdi Mohammadifard and Arshia Takdastan

Young protesters Javad Rouhi, Mehdi Mohammadifard and Arshia Takdastan are at risk of execution in Iran following grossly unfair trials in connection with protests in Noshahr, Mazandaran province. The Revolutionary Court stated that they “incited riots” by dancing, clapping, chanting or throwing headscarves into bonfires. Authorities subjected them to beatings, floggings, electric shocks, suspension, death threats and sexual violence to extract “confessions”.


STATE OF PALESTINE: Wissam al-Tawil and Fatimah al-Tawil

Two Palestinian women have not been heard from since 6 January after the Palestinian security services in the Gaza Strip forced them back into the custody of their abusive father. Wissam al-Tawil, 24, and her sister Fatimah al-Tawil, 20, have faced multiple forms of violence at the hands of their father, including beatings, death threats and “interrogations” at gunpoint. Amnesty International is asking for proof that Wissam and Fatimah al-Tawil are alive and safe and for the authorities in Gaza to grant them immediate protection from all forms of gender-based violence.


IRAN: Mohammad Ghobadlou

Mohammad Ghobadlou is at grave risk of execution in connection with Iran’s nationwide protests. He has received two death sentences after grossly unfair sham trials, marred by torture-tainted “confessions” and failure to order rigorous mental health assessments despite his mental disability. International law and standards prohibit using the death penalty against people with mental disabilities.


BAHRAIN: Abdulhadi Al-Khawaja

Danish-Bahraini human rights defender Abdulhadi Al-Khawaja continues to be denied due process by the court. On 29 December 2022, an appeal court ruled that he did not have the right to appeal the case in which a criminal court convicted him of insulting a public servant and on 5 January 2023 it upheld his conviction in the case of breaking a chair in prison. Abdulhadi Al-Khawaja was not brought to court to attend the sessions. On 6 January 2023 he was taken to the prison guards’ room to face the public servant he is accused of insulting. Abdulhadi Al-Khawaja is a prisoner of conscience who should be immediately and unconditionally released.


CHINA: Huang Qi

Founder and director of Sichuan-based human rights website “64 Tianwang” was able to speak with his mother on videoconference on 24 November 2022. His health has further deteriorated following his diagnosis of hyperthyroidism in July. With limited access to healthcare and additional supplies, his poor health is at risk of significant deterioration. His mother, 89, continues to be subject to heavy surveillance. The authorities must ensure that Huang has access to immediate and proper medical care and allow him to speak with his family and lawyers of his choice.
