CIVICUS is launching a global campaign called SPEAK! to help give a voice to everyone, everywhere. The campaign has been created in response to the current global context, in which people around the world are facing increasing attacks on their basic freedoms, and a culture of division is causing many to turn against each other. SPEAK! is the evolution of the Global Day of Citizen Action. It will culminate in three days of global action from 22-24 September. On Friday 22nd, the world will fall silent, in solidarity with those who have been jailed or killed for daring to raise their voice. Then, on the weekend of Saturday 23rd & Sunday 24th, the world will speak as one, with hundreds of events being held around the world. CIVICUS invites organisations around the world to take part in SPEAK! in 2017 by creating and event or action, participating in something happening nearby, or joining the campaign #TOGETHERWESPEAK! online.
