North Africa and West Asia: Voices of Resistance, Struggles for Social Justice

October 2017

With all the momentous changes unleashed by the Arab uprisings in 2011, the intensification of social struggles and the opening up of new horizons for radical change in the North Africa and West Asia (NAWA) region, War on Want has decided to create a new programme specifically focused on this area. Our aim is to platform the voices of progressive, organised, representative social movements, women, community and worker led collectives, giving emphasis to resistance and social justice struggles.
