People before profits

Across almost every issue, critiques of the current challenges that movements face inevitably point toward a broken economic system, as Adriano Campolina, chief executive of ActionAid International wrote:

“The big picture — an entrenched political and economic elite willing to manipulate laws to prevent us from challenging them, and a society hurtling toward climate catastrophe in the absence of global leadership willing to face the facts — is too plain to ignore… The siphoning of money away from people and governments and into the pockets of super-wealthy corporations and individuals has reached proportions that few of us can fathom. The system, in the shape of its most successful exploiters, is consuming itself while marshaling its forces to silence those who sound the alarm.”


The Populist Movement is alive around the world.
