Up Front: The Crisis of Inequality

April 2019

War on Want has always believed that poverty is political: a result of decisions made by powerful governments, corporations, and elites to maintain the status quo for their own benefit. In this edition of Up Front we highlight the crisis of inequality we are currently facing. With the concentration of power in the hands of such a small few, we know the global economic system is broken. But the crisis of inequality can and will be overcome. Not by the billionaires at Davos or by politicians demanding fences and walls, but by ordinary people of conscience around the globe.

In our spring and summer edition of Up Front, read about our recent Stop Arming Israel campaign victory, and about the launch of our new campaign to stop corrupt corporate courts. We highlight the devastating impact of mining in Latin America, as well as a recent victory for land rights in South Africa. Not yet a member of War on Want? Join us here.
