Cover Story: Giving it all away

Across the world, the divide between poverty and prosperity is starting to look like an open-cut mine. But is there a solution? Does help for the very poor lie with the very rich – people like Gina Rinehart?

Also in this issue:

Michael Klinkhamer meets the legendary war photographer Tim Page; Doug Wallen talks protest anthems, cover versions and movie roles with Reggae royalty Jimmy Cliff; Anthony Morris explains how Brendan Cowell is batting above his average in a brand new ‘crick-flick’ (super-cool new name for an emerging sports film subgenre – don’t fight it, okay?); Mic Looby chronicles his misadventures with fake poo; and in ‘Roving Eye’, eight photojournalists explore the meaning of peace across several generations and different theatres of conflict.

This edition’s ‘Vendor Profile’ is Kerry-Anne from Adelaide. And we have ‘Streetsheet’ contributions from Nathan C in Brisbane, Mark in Sydney and Peter (‘Muddy’) W in Melbourne. In ‘Streetsheet’ we farewell Greg C, a very popular vendor from Adelaide. South Australian state operations manager Jeremy Urquhart says Greg was a “gentle man with a big heart”. He will be missed.
