Capitalism Isn’t Working: Another World Is Possible
I am a member of the grass roots CTEHV (Committee To End Homelessness Victoria), which formed a year before City of Victoria’s GVCTEH (Greater Victoria Coalition To End Homelessness).
I will do a short five minute talk (see below) then show slides of photo’s ranging from the No Olympic convergence to recent local street photo’s depicting our oppressive racist poor bashing police state and the inevitable lack of health services to poor and disenfranchised. 1,467 Condo starts in Viktoria from 2009 to last year, WAY MORE condo’s then Social Houses is a travesty!
Martin Luther King 1967:
“In the treatment of poverty nationally, one fact stands out: there are twice as many white poor as Negro poor in the United States. Therefore I will not dwell on the experiences of poverty that derive from racial discrimination, but will discuss the poverty that affects white and Negro alike.”
“I am now convinced that the simplest approach will prove to be the most effective — the solution to poverty is to abolish it directly by a now widely discussed measure: the guaranteed income.”
“…a host of positive psychological changes inevitably will result from widespread economic security. The dignity of the individual will flourish when the decisions concerning his life and in his own hands, when he has the assurance that his income is stable and certain, and when he know that he has the means to seek self-improvement. Personal conflicts between husband, wife and children will diminish when the unjust measurement of human worth on a scale of dollars is eliminated.”
