‘We are hiding out with no water’: Detroit privatizers deny poor people their right to water

June 28, 2014

White people, run, don’t walk to ‘12 Years a Slave’

February 2, 2013

This is but one example of many acts of interdependence, love and revolution achieved by our family of poor and indigenous peoples at POOR Magazine.
