"On one level, as so much twitter outrage has pointed out, these spikes symbolise the transformation of the homeless into a form of vermin. But their artistic resonance goes further than that. These spikes beautifully encapsulate the essential concerns of a society that has abandoned any pretence of social justice, fairness and equality, even to the point of refusing to ensure what ought to be the essential component of any civilised society - a home for all its citizens."

Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela: In full, “Overcoming poverty is not a task of charity, it is an act of justice, like Slavery and Apartheid, poverty is not natural. It is man made and it can be overcome and eradicated by the actions of human beings. Sometimes it falls on a generation to be great. YOU can be that great generation. Let your greatness blossom.”

Add to that school health care and lunch provided everyday, which covers about a third of the daily nutritional need. #Finland #child #poverty. Finland treats minors like people who deserve to be given a fair chance at life, imagine that.
