Keeping up the pressure on child poverty

Catriona Maclennan (barrister, journalist and social activist) has started a series on Face TV about child poverty in New Zealand.

This is a huge part of the inequality story – 285,000 children in poverty (as defined as living in families with less than 60% of the average household income) – and a national embarrassment, frankly.

The first episode is here, and the second episode here. Well worth a look, especially as the election campaign steps up a gear.

More details about the series are available here.
