"Create the Community of Peoples and Nations that We Need" ~ Marta Benavides

Speaking at the The World We Want People's Voices Series in New York on the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty, GCAP co-chair Marta Benavides called on all members of society to “work together to create the community of peoples and nations that we need.”

But first, she argued, the peoples of the North and South must recognise that modern poverty is rooted in the history of colonialism and exploitation.

“We need to decolonise the processes . . . I don't want a better world,” Benavides argues, “I want a different world order, but that can only happen if we have the Economic, Social and Cultural rights of people. People have dignity. We are not asking for handouts.”
