did you know that
the first world (20% of the worlds population) own 83% of the worlds wealth.
the second world (60% of the worlds population) own 15.4% of the worlds wealth.
and the third world (20% of the worlds population) own 1.6% of the worlds wealth.
every 5 seconds a child in the third world dies
every day 5000 people die from dirty drinking water in the third world
every day 30,000 people die from hunger most of them are children
every year the first world cheat the third world out of £500,000,000,000
how do they do that? well they lend the third world money but the first world want that money back with interest but the third world can't pay it back with the interest so it just keeps building up and up and up.
can you guess how much interest there is? for every £1 they borrow the their world have to pay back £3
if world debt is cancelled the money can be spent on clean water, food and medicine
every one deserves a fair chance
