Brazilian ranchers truly believe in the "free" market - by which they
mean that labour should not be paid for. So far this year, 1,149
people have been freed from slavery. Between 1995 and 2002, more
than 4,500 rural workers were freed from slavery.


THE EU spends the equivalent of US$2.20 on agricultural subsidies
each and every day for each and every cow in Europe. Meanwhile 1.5
billion people exist on US$1.00 or less per day.


The US government has given a private company the OK to start
commercialising the moon. The TransOribal Corporation of
California is expecting money to start rolling in within two years.

to the moon???


And you thought house prices had gone crazy here In the English
town of Sidford a former fish shop has been converted into a 'house'
that measures 15ftx 10ft. It went on the market for ¤93,800. It has
one room, with a tiny kitchenette and shower extension. Upstairs is a
bedroom just four feet high at its tallest point.


According to the Mainstream Media Project, Bread for the World
Institute, and the 2001 United Nations Development Report the
world's poorest nations, where 800 million are hungry and 40 million
are infected with HIV, could solve their basic problems of food, clean
water and health care with only 4% of the combined wealth of the
225 richest people on the planet.


The Vincent de Paul charity is paying for medical care to ensure that
poor people who are extremely ill do not die on waiting lists. In one
case an elderly woman with gangrene in both feet was refused
admission to a south Dublin hospital as there were no available
public beds. When the local SVP paid for private treatment she was
admitted immediately.
