From Socialist Voice, December 2006

Letter to the editor

Dear comrades,
    You said that “nothing has changed” since the commitment to ending poverty was announced [Socialist Voice, November 2006, p. 6]. That is wrong.
    Cuba announced that it had already achieved its commitments to poverty eradication in 2007, 13 years ahead of the UN target. Also Venezuela is on program to meet the UN targets and hopes to accelerate the program to achieve the goal before the UN target date.
    These are facts blanked out from every news report on the UN poverty program in the commercial press—surely such facts deserve to be reported in your publication.
    Simon McGuinness,
    Dublin
