    Whatever happened to Make Poverty History?

    CartelesApparently, not much. A year after the demonstrations (biggest in Scotland's history), a bit has changed, but poverty is not history. Sharing the load talks about how direct food aid has been changed to cash grants, so that people can buy food, and trade networks are reinforced, as oposed to destroying them, which is what happened in the past. Besides, a balance has to be kept between long term development projects and short-term crisis aid, and that's been sought, too.
    All in all, I wouldn't say poverty will be history any time soon, but it's nice to see things are improving. We'll get back to this a year from now. BTW, the website is still online.
