ProtectionLine is an initiative of Protection International, within its Mainstreaming Protection of Human Rights Defenders Programme. The website ProtectionLine was developed through the cooperation with Asian, American and African human rights defenders.

This platform aims to ensure information exchange between human rights defenders and foster solidarity for defenders worldwide.

The following, furthermore, are principles born on our convictions :

• The inalienable right of the victims of human rights violations to obtain justice and reparation

• The necessity of preserving the principles and objectives of the charter of the United Nations towards the multiplication of laws that limit the fundamental rights and that criminalize the social respond-actions

• The importance of non-violent-actions
