The fight to build a better world: We are hopeful. We are fearless.

We have cast our votes. Whatever the new government, it doesn’t stop here.

In the fight to build a better world, our values of human rights, internationalism, justice and solidarity are more important than ever.

We are ready to hold the government to account, to challenge the choices it makes in the interests of the privileged few. We will stand together with the many.

For decades we have stood shoulder to shoulder with those around the world who are on the frontline of oppression. This struggle goes on.

We will not give an inch in the fight for social justice and human rights for ordinary people in the UK and across the global South.

Join us

Share this and inspire others. 

We will fight to:

  • Ensure human rights and environmental protection are at the heart of new trade deals
  • End UK complicity in human rights violations by halting the arms trade with countries like Israel and Saudi Arabia
  • Protect migrant workers’ rights

Help us take on corporate power and the politicians in the pockets of big business.

Together, let’s call out the systems and structures that deepen poverty, inequality and injustice.

We are hopeful. We are fearless.  

In solidarity.
