From the description:
“With one and a half million American children now homeless, reporter Hilary Andersson meets the school pupils who go hungry in the richest country on Earth. From those living in the storm drains under Las Vegas to the tent cities now springing up around the United States, Panorama finds out how the poor are surviving in America and asks whatever happened to Barack Obama’s vision for the country”.
I mentioned this video on the 2025 collapse thread – It aired on BBC last night and I just found on Youtube so that I could share it here. I know that this website is about “justice for US persons abroad”, but I think that we could maybe spare a thought for those still in the US.
I found this to be really shocking and evidence of what I saw the last time that I visited the US in 2010. Its all here: failing schools, out-priced medical care, homelessness, rigid social mobility, the broken political system and so on.
I can’t remember the last time that I saw a homeless person in the street in Belgium and nobody has to fear visiting a doctor here. Very disturbing to watch.
