For those who want to ensure that the views and values of people around the world can be heard on issues that affect us all, becoming a member of Avaaz.org is a good start. (Link below)
"Avaaz” means “voice” in several languages of countries in Europe, the Middle East and Asia. It is a kind of social network site on popular politics: a transnational community that may be more open, more democratic and more efficient than transnational organizations, such as the UN and the IMF, some believe. In fact, Avaaz is conveniently fits our times, when, more prominently, Facebook, Twitter and Google are the real big "human nations."
Avaaz was launched in 2007 with a simple democratic mission: to organize the citizens of all nations to reduce the gap between the world that we live in and the world that most people believe is possible to build globally. This site allows millions of people from all walks of life to take action on global, regional and national issues, from corruption and poverty to the interference in conflicts and climate change. All this via the Internet through community campaigns in 14 languages, with a staff fixed in four continents and thousands of volunteers worldwide.
The modus operandi of Avaaz is through signing petitions, funding media campaigns and direct actions by e-mail, as well as summonses and lobby with governments on behalf of the "offline" organization of protests and events.
