The End of Poverty?

A new film by Philippe Diaz called The End of Poverty?, came out this month. This film focuses on Africa and Latin America, giving the hard facts of why people are in poverty. It touches on the fault at colonialism, racism, industrialization and modern industrial development. It is designed to inform and inspire. There are many programs that were "designed" to help aid poverty stricken countries, but in reality perpetuated the wealth of the few in industrialized countries. This movie will shed light on the fault that the industrial world has, and the improportionate amount of wealth that we consume. Hopefully this will open the eyes to many on the necessity to act; a great way is to call your senators!

Go to to read about the movie and see the trailer.
