A few quotes from Martin Luther King Jr. to remember post $45bn charitable gift from Mark Zuckerberg:
"Philanthropy is commendable, but it must not cause the philanthropist to overlook the circumstances of economic injustice which make philanthropy necessary."
"Capitalism does not permit an even flow of economic resources. With this system, a small privileged few are rich beyond conscience, and almost all others are doomed to be poor at some level. That's the way the system works. And since we know that the system will not change the rules, we are going to have to change the system."
Five Leaves Bookshop in Nottingham opened in 2013; since then the independent radical bookshop has gone from strength to strength. Staff are apid a living wage, the bookshop stocks a wide range of excellent titles, and there's also the Five Leaves publishing imprint! Books Combined spoke to Ross Bradshaw, owner of the store and editorial director of Five Leaves Press.
