War on Want is a dynamic organisation working in active solidarity with grassroots social movements around the world while undertaking cutting edge campaigns in the UK.
We have been fighting against the root causes of poverty and oppression, as part of the worldwide movement for social justice. We believe that another world is possible and together with thousands of other networks, groups and social movements we jointly struggle for a better world.
Through our International Programmes we have been able to develop long standing relationships with partners in the global South, specifically with social movements, worker-led collectives and grassroots movements led by indigenous people, peasants and women. Our partners are located in Latin America. Asia and Africa and are engaged in struggles for workers’ rights, land rights, the right to decide on their natural and mineral resources and the right to food sovereignty.
