Who Pollutes: The Rich or the Poor?
Op Ed by Vandana Shiva
"The poor live in the places polluted by the rich, they do not cause the pollution. And they live in polluted places because they are displaced from their homes in rural areas where they had lived sustainably for millennia. They are victims of pollution because they are victims of dispossession - this is environmental injustice."
