War on Want's revamped website: It’s a good ‘un!

Press release

War on Want launched a revamped website today. The launch coincides with a new report on Palestine due this week and the 10th anniversary of the Palestinian call for Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions against Israel.

John Hilary, Executive Director of War on Want, said:

“War on Want’s radical politics give us a competitive advantage in setting the agenda, but we must constantly evolve to seize all opportunities to increase our influence and our impact in the changing social and technological environment.

“The new website will help us bring the message of radical social change to fresh audiences, and deepen our membership and supporter base further.

“Having conducted feedback with users, we have honed and streamlined the site while retaining a use of strong imagery and bold colours. It is now mobile and tablet friendly and much better integrated into other social media platforms.

“As our campaigning work on Palestine grows, the new website will be a crucial resource for engaging, educating and inspiring our supporters.”
