Environmental Destruction The cycle of poverty Forests Are Logged Forests that were home and life for people (and thousands of other living species) are felled to earn export income and feed the appetite for paper and timber in rich countries. Cash crops take over Land which once grew food for families now grows cash crops (like tobacco, cotton, coffee, tea) for export to rich countries like Australia. This was our land International Coffee Corp. People Are Displaced Into Lives Of Poverty And Hunger On marginal land...which they are forced to over-exploit, leading to a spiral of deepening environmental degradation and poverty. Or in cities...where they often lead lives of desperate poverty in polluted and unhealthy environments. Cigarette Mister?...My Sister?

Look...We Know It's Costing Your Entire National Income To Pay Our Interest...But That's Economics!

Translation: El Ciclo de la Pobreza Los Bosques son talados Los bosques que fueron el hogar y vida de la gente (y miles de otras especies vivas) son talados para obtener ingresos de exportación y alimentar el apetito por papel y madera en países ricos Los Cultivos Comerciales Toman el Contro La tierra que una vez dió alimentos para las familias ahora da cultivos comerciales (como tabaco, algodón, café, té) para su exportación a países ricos como Australia Las Personas son Desplazadas a una Vida de Pobreza y Hambre En tierras marginales... que los obliga a sobreexplotar, y que conduce a una espiral profunda de degradación ambiental y pobreza O en las ciudades... donde a menudo llevan una vida de pobreza desesperada en ambientes contaminados e insalubres El Mundo en Crisis de Deudas El precio de exportación, como el café, cae en picada, mientras el interés de los préstamos sube Los Bancos se Ponen Difíciles El Fondo Monetario Internacional (FMI) reprograma las deudas con la condición de que los países se aprieten el cinturón y obtengan más ingresos de exportación. A consecuencia, la salud, la educación, el bienestar social y el empleo se acortan, los precios se disparan, y la pobreza se reforza.
