International Organization has Goal of Uniting People for Social and Economic Justice

Avaaz, which means "voice" in several European, Middle-Eastern and Asian languages, has a goal of closing the gap between "the world we have and the world most people everywhere want". Avaaz aims to empower millions of diverse individuals around issues such as poverty, environmental issues and more. They have currently launched an online petition in solidarity with the Wall Street occupiers, and it reads:

"We stand with you in this struggle for real democracy. Together we can end the capture and corruption of our governments by corporate and wealthy elites, and hold our politicians accountable to serve the public interest. We are united – the time for change has come!"
