War on Want campaigns against the root causes of poverty and injustice. Our campaigns are rooted in the global justice movements. We works with some of the bravest and most inspiring groups in the world. In rural communities, in factories and sweatshops, in conflict zones and on the margins of society, we work with people fighting for real, lasting change. In the UK we work to change British government policy and the way international institutions operate. We are currently campaigning for a living wage for workers in supply chains, to stop the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) and to end the occupation of Palestine.
