Coalition Against Misuse of the Blasphemy Laws
Coalition Against Misuse of the Blasphemy Laws is an international coalition with a common aim: an end to the way Pakistan’s blasphemy law is currently being abused.
Along with opportunities to advocate for change, we will provide key legal resources regarding the Coalition Against Misuse of the Blasphemy Laws and its status in international law. Also we will keep you updated on all developments as the future of the Blasphemy Law is discussed, within Pakistan and around the world.
The coalition was founded by the Christian charity CLAAS, who have dedicated to helping persecuted Christians in Pakistan since 1998. We have been offering legal assistance to those accused of committing blasphemy and, when necessary, giving safe refuge to those in fear of reprisals.
However, Coalition Against Misuse of the Blasphemy Laws is open to both religious and nonreligious organisations, including both Christians and Muslims, who feel the law should not be abused in this way.
The voice of opposition grows louder every day. Together, change is possible.

Greenbelt is a festival of arts, faith and justice. It launched in 1974 and has hosted its annual festival every year since. Greenbelt believes that things often kept apart can and should be held together. Things like artistry and activism, spirituality and politics, faith and justice. It is a festival where these things belong together and where all are welcome. Energised by a progressive Christian worldview, Greenbelt creates a festival that is inclusive, open-minded, participatory and generous in spirit.
PCN Britain has had a presence at Greenbelt since 2011. We intend to continue that link though not necessarily every year.
