    This spells out in matter of fact language the horror of poverty within our own society. The statements are based on deeply researched facts and is a wake-up call for all of us. Arising from the forum organised by this lady on Monday last it is worth googling Mondragon to see what was achieved in the Basque region of Spain. This movement has spread to America and could have significance for us.
