Rapid Action

PEN’s Rapid Actions are urgent bulletins about writers at risk of arrest, imprisonment, or attack. Each of the bulletins contains a brief summary of the case and information on who you can contact to stop or mitigate the abuse.

Information saves lives. Take a moment to share these bulletins or write a letter on behalf of a colleague in need.
