Get involved: Pocket Protest Network

Do you want to be the first to know about Amnesty’s actions and activities near you? Sign up for the Act for Amnesty WhatsApp Broadcast List!

Activism around the world is changing and we are too!

We have started using WhatsApp for our mobilising and organising, as well as email, as a more immediate way for us to have the most impact together! We’d like to send you direct WhatsApp messages through a Broadcast list. This allows us to send quick and easy actions directly to your phone to make an even bigger impact. These are individual messages for you from Amnesty – It’s not another dreaded WhatsApp Group!

Sign up to our Pocket Protest WhatsApp for messages about petitions, events, and protests three times per week or sign up for Pocket Protest SMS to receive petitions and events twice per month.

Why be a Pocket Protest activist?

Every day, our activists’ campaign to protect human rights around the world. As a member of the Pocket Protest Network you will receive regular actions and updates on our work by WhatsApp message. The Protect Protest network provides a quick and easy way to engage in digital activism and mobilise to respond to Human Rights threats through social media. We will also send you other related information including conferences, fundraising events, training, and opportunities to participate in our global campaigns. You’ll also get information on volunteer opportunities like participating in summer music festivals like Forbidden Fruit, Longitude and Electric Picnic.

If you’re not on social media, DON’T WORRY! We will send periodic actions that don’t require a social media account.

If you’re not on Whatsapp – email us to join Act For Amnesty on act(at)
We’re looking for dedicated, passionate and reliable people who are interested in campaigning for a world where human rights are enjoyed by all.

How to sign up for Pocket Protest:

Save our activism phone number 0866054778 to your contacts list and WhatsApp message ‘Amnesty IN’ to us. If you’ve downloaded WhatsApp on your phone, tablet or computer, you can also message us by clicking on this link (just be sure to save our number still).

It’s as simple as that!

Will your information/messages remain anonymous?

Yes! The beauty of a broadcast list is none of your information will be shared outside our Teams at Amnesty International. You can’t see other people’s phone numbers or messages and they can’t see yours.

Can you Opt Out?

Yes! You can opt out at any time. All you do is send the words ‘Amnesty OUT’ to the same number. Then we’ll remove you from the list.

You can also download our activist toolkit.
