The creation of a just economic system that benefits everyone rather than just the 1% elite through the use of progressive economic and fiscal policies.
Achieving economic, legal, social and political equality for women and sexual and gender-based minorities through a socialist-feminist struggle that roots out all anti-women laws, structures, practices and patriarchal social norms in our society.
A model of development that is sustainable, ecologically-balanced and prioritizes the well-being of individuals and the environment above the demands of profit.
The AWP is the largest and fastest-growing party of the socialist Left in Pakistan. Formed in 2012, it represents an attempt to rebuild a popular left-wing party that represents ordinary people and is adapted to the new challenges of the 21st century. Since its formation, the party has tried to reintroduce progressive ideas into a political arena that has shifted alarmingly to the right in Pakistan.
It has worked to build movements that challenge the political, economic and ideological status quo; for access to land and housing, for political and social freedoms, for women’s emancipation amid rising patriarchal violence, in support of fair wages and dignified employment, for equal rights for all nations, against imperialism, for a progressive fightback against growing rightwing fascism, and for the separation of religion and state. In this time, AWP has also worked proactively to build a left democratic alliance around the country.
