Friends of the Earth strives for a more healthy and just world. We understand that the challenges facing our planet call for more than half measures, so we push for the reforms that are needed, not merely the ones that are politically easy. Sometimes, this involves speaking uncomfortable truths to power and demanding more than people think is possible. It's hard work. But the pressures facing our planet and its people are too important for us to compromise.
We are members of Friends of the Earth International, a global network representing more than two million activists in 76 different countries.

For more than 30 years, Human Rights Watch has worked tenaciously to lay the legal and moral groundwork for deep-rooted change and has fought to bring greater justice and security to people around the world.
INTERPOL is the world’s largest international police organization, with 190 member countries.

WWF works on the ground for direct conservation, as well as through innovative partnerships to promote advocacy and develop high-level policies that achieve specific environmental goals. We also work to make business and industry more sustainable, improve the lives of people, and protect nature and biodiversity for the long-term benefit of all. WWF takes a two-pronged approach to meeting its goals and missions: by focusing on conserving critical areas and on protecting critical species that are particularly important for their habitat or for people.
WWF is also working to reducing humanity's ecological footprint – the amount of land, water and other natural resources needed to supply our food, building materials and fuels, and to absorb our carbon dioxide emissions
