Can shopping build solidarity?
well, the actual title of this fabulous video by Ananya Roy and gang is "Can we shop to end poverty?" - but she ends by arguing for a shift from responsibility to accountability, even mutuality and solidarity. ok, I gave away the punch line, but please, watch it, you'll be challenged and moved!
(thanks to Paul Jackson, whose blog pointed me to this video. The video is part of the #Global POV Project, which has other videos, and is an ongoing twitter conversation)
