How we make poverty

Poverty requires a system change against the undervaluing of everything that poor people do only to expand the fortunes of the already wealthy – a form of thievery that this edition lays bare. This argument for change is not new, but it acquires urgency because today there is no reason whatsoever why poverty should still exist and why inequality should be spiralling out of control.

Elsewhere, we share stories of people fighting the power: doughty indigenous human-rights defender Virginia Penares from Peru, Canadian youth taking a stand for the planet, and Sarawak islanders in Indonesia holding out for sustainable renewable power over destructive mega-dams.
