International Solidarity

These groups work on the assumption that struggles and conflicts around the globe are more likely to be resolved if pressure is applied and solidarity shown by people in other countries and communities.

The groups in this section represent local efforts to spread awareness or reduce the impact of issues elsewhere in the world. Some focus on individual issues, while others take a more general approach.

Learn more about active conflicts and ongoing issues in the world today, and what can be done to alleviate their impact.
