World Homeless Day

IN PICTURES: With the expansion of neoliberalism around the world, homelessness is becoming a growing problem, especially in the world’s premiere capitalist hubs.

Across the world, global poverty is increasing as inequality continues to stratify the world's population.

Oct. 10, 2017 marks the 7th annual World Homeless Day, which came about through online discussions where activists brainstormed ideas on how to address growing poverty.

World Homeless Day is recognized on all continents except Antarctica.
