#StandWithStan – Jesuits in Britain Call for Support for Fr Stan Swamy SJ on 10th December 2020 – Human Rights Day

This Human Rights Day falls on the 10 December, and Jesuit Missions have asked for your help to take action to help free Fr Stan Swamy SJ from prison.

Fr Stan, a Jesuit priest and human rights activist, has been unfairly imprisoned by the National Investigation Agency in India since the 8 October.

He is 83 years old, in poor health and suffering from Parkinson’s disease. He needs your help.

What you can do

We want to raise awareness about what has happened to Fr Stan Swamy. This can be done in two ways.

Stand with Stan online

On Human Rights Day, we will be posting photos from Jesuit Mission supporters, Jesuit schools and parishes and others all standing with Stan. This will be part of an international online campaign and we are inviting you to get involved.

You can take action and #StandwithStan, by sending a photo of yourself with a poster, or sign that says #StandwithStan (you can download a poster below).

On the 10 December, all the photos of supporters will be tweeted to Ravi Shankar Prasad, Minister of Law and Justice in India calling him to take action for Stan on Human Rights Day.

To take part simply download and print our Stand with Stan poster, or create one yourself. Then, take a picture of yourself with the poster and send it to us using the link below!
