By *Kshama Sawant*, Seattle
This city has made glittering fortunes for the super wealthy and for the
major corporations that dominate Seattle's landscape. At the same time,
the lives of working people, the unemployed and the poor grow more
difficult by the day. The cost of housing skyrockets, and education and
healthcare become inaccessible.
This is not unique to Seattle. Shamefully, in this, the richest country
in human history, 50 million of our people -- one in six -- live in
poverty. Around the world, billions do not have access to clean water
and basic sanitation and children die every day from malnutrition.
This is the reality of international capitalism.
