stand up against poverty

as promised, a video about poverty every day this week – blog action day week. this one is a moving piece from last year’s day against poverty.

again, i want to take this opportunity and both thank some people who have been good to me, and also shamelessly use this linkbait to draw everyone’s attention to the issue of poverty. today, i’m tagging some of my friends from entrecard:

    Firstly, let me say I totally agree with you.

    However, I cannot see the G8 nations (and in that I do unfortunately include the general populace and not just politicians) “standing up” and wiping out 3rd world debt.

    Given the downturn in the economic outlook over the past 6 months, it is going to be far more difficult to get onto the social and political agenda.

    It is far easier to make grand gestures on debt in good times. When we are at the outset of the greatest recession for some time, I don’t think we as individuals and nations are quite so generous.
