You know how we reckon that 'anger is an energy'? Well, this is enough to charge our batteries for weeks. It's a fricking disgrace.

1) Since 1960 the countries where the richest 20% of the world's people live, have increased their share of gross world product from 73% to 83%. These rich countries are now seventy times better off than those where the poorest 10% live. Almost half the world — over three billion people — live on less than $2.50 a day. At least 80% of humanity lives on less than $10 a day (For the 95% on $10 a day, see Martin Ravallion, Shaohua Chen and Prem Sangraula, Dollar a day revisited, World Bank, May 2008. They note that 95% of developing country population lived on less than $10 a day. Using 2005 population numbers, this is equivalent to just under 79.7% of world population, and does not include populations living on less than $10 a day from industrialized nations.)

2) 870 million people in the world are severely malnourished or starving. That is 70 million more than in 1998.

3) 10% of the children in the poor countries of the world die before their fifth birthday. 40,000 children in poor countries die every day through preventable diseases - the equivalent of dropping a bomb similar to the one dropped on Hiroshima on the poor children of the world every three days.

4) 8 men own as much wealth as half the world's population. This is less than in 1998, when the number was 358.

5) One person in three in poor countries is homeless or in severely sub-standard housing. A third of the population in most third world countries are squatters.

6) 26.4 million people have been driven from their homes by violence or armed conflict; 80% of them women and children. Over the last decades, the number of conflict between states has decreased, while the number of internal conflicts has continuously been on the rise

7) Freedom House, a non-governmental organisation headquartered in Washington DC that conducts research and advocacy on democracy, estimates that about two-thirds of the world’s citizens live under a dictatorship, and two billion people suffer from an oppressive rule.  These military dictatorships propped up by multinationals that earn huge profits from the cheap labour these regimes provide

8) World on track to lose two-thirds of wild animals by 2020. The analysis, the most comprehensive to date, indicates that animal populations plummeted by 58% between 1970 and 2012, with losses on track to reach 67% by 2020. 

9)  According to Rainforest Action Network, "If present rates of destruction continue, half our remaining rainforests will be gone by the year 2025, and by 2060 there will be no rainforests remaining."

Some hard facts: 

• World military spending is $1676 per year. This is up from 778 billion a year right before the millennium.

• The 1 percent has 35.6 percent of all private wealth, more than the bottom 95 percent combined. The 200 richest people in theworld have a combined wealth of more than $1 trillion, equal to the annual income of the poorest 47 per cent of the Earth - equal to the annual income of the poorest 47% of the earths population, some 2.5 billion people.

• Europe and the United States spend $17 billion a year on pet food and $12 billion a year on perfumes - enough to provide education, food, health care, water and sanitation for all those now deprived of the basics - with billions to spare. Basic education for all Earth's citizens alone would cost just $6 billion a year.

• A child born in New York, Paris and London will consume, pollute and waste more in their lifetime than 50 children born in a developing country.

• There are 15 individuals in the world who are worth more than the whole of sub-Sahara Africa - some 600 million people while over 100 million children throughout the world are forced to work under hazardous and often fatal conditions; many are employed under slave- like conditions for no pay.
