Up Front: Defending the Defenders

October 2019

At War on Want we believe that a just world is possible. As part of our fight against the root causes of poverty and human rights violations, we work directly with inspirational communities, grassroots groups and social movements in the struggle for a better world.

In this edition of Up Front we call on you to stand with us in defending the defenders: the frontline communities struggling for justice. From the Palestinian peoples defending their rights against Trump’s so-called ‘Deal of the Century’, to the Colombian communities battling UK coal giants, and the South African shack dwellers fighting for decent housing and services. Not yet a member of War on Want? Join us here.
