Comrades, this is the face of poverty and the consequences of capitalist imperialism and neoliberalism. Just look at the horrible conditions in which this poor woman and her daughter are living. This woman should be in a hospital, being cared for by professionals instead of laying on a carpet or piece of cardboard in the middle of a literal trash dump while her daughter acts as an IV stand.
When we stand up and demand equality for workers, when we say we want a better society and that socialism is the answer to the problems that are caused by capitalism, THIS is the picture I want people to see in their minds.
How can anyone look at this photo and have nothing less than grieved compassion for this mother and daughter?
