ORGANISATIONS

Protesters around the world are demanding change. 

Demonstrations across the world share motivations, including economic inequality, corruption, and poor governance.

 

As political systems continue to be unresponsive, people are pushing and demanding to have their voices heard. 

Learn, Organise and Take action to make a difference today.

CARE International was founded in 1945 and aims to help people to recover from war and fight poverty in the poorest countries. They work across 79 developing countries to save lives in emergency situations and find long-term solutions to poverty for millions of people. They also focus on empowering women and girls to fulfil their potential.

The Human Rights Watch is a leading international organisation which is dedicated to defending and promoting human rights around the world. Their researchers work to uncover human rights violations by speaking to eye-witnesses and authorities. They believe that exposing these abuses gives voice to the victims and generates intense international pressure on governments to take action. They also pursue perpetrators of abuses until they are brought to justice. Their London team is comprised of 34 active, long term supporters of Human Rights who live in London. They form part of an international network of Committees and Ambassadors who advance the efforts of Human Rights by organising conferences, briefings and other events to raise awareness.

The Refugee Council is one of the leading charities in the UK working directly with refugees and supporting them to rebuild their lives. Founded in 1951 in response to the UN convention for refugees, the council has provided practical and emotional support to refugees from all over the world. It also runs an Advocacy Network to provide a direct link between other organisations working with refugees and asylum seekers in the UK. Despite receiving some funding from local, central and European Government, the organisation relies mostly on voluntary income, including donations.
