When ProDESC or other organizations are notified that human rights defenders are in a situation that endangers their own physical safety or that of their families, urgent actions are taken to activate a network, calling into action many people from different parts of the world.
By signing and sharing petitions and submitting demands to various governments, you can help reveal and prevent human rights violations such as threats, intimidations, torture and arbitrary detentions of the community defenders with whom we work.
We are a non-governmental organization, founded in 2005. Our objective is to defend and promote economic, social and cultural rights. We accompany agrarian and indigenous communities in the defense of their land, territory and natural resources, as well as worker collectives in the defense of their labor rights.
