Let Them Eat Garbage



Garbage: A polluted creek covered with trash in Manila, Philippines

In honor of World Environmental Day – established by the UN in 1972 to
put a human face on environmental threats – an astonishing slideshow of
the garbage, often from rich countries, that inundates the poor. To see
the pictures go here; to find out what you can do, go here 

This is the world we live in. This is the world we cover.

Because of people like you, another world is possible. There are many battles to be won, but we will battle them together—all of us. Common Dreams is not your normal news site. We don't survive on clicks. We don't want advertising dollars. We want the world to be a better place. But we can't do it alone. It doesn't work that way. We need you. If you can help today—because every gift of every size matters—please do.
