The Big Issue 15-04-19

The Big Issue is a UK-based street paper that supports the homeless, the vulnerably housed and those seeking to escape poverty. Vendors normally buy the magazine for £1.25 and sell to the public for £2.50. We are using Zinio digital editions to create additonal revenue opportunities to fund our street-based and pastoral care services for our vendors. We are a social enterprise company and all revenues go to support the vulnerable communities we serve. Our goal is to move our vendors away from dependency and towards full time employment

this week we asked you...

A public health emergency was declared in New York over measles, while cases in Europe have tripled. Anti-vaccination campaigns by parents are being blamed. Should the state intervene? Refusal of vaccines ought to be treated the same as refusal to use car seats for children. Huggy Badger, Facebook State should definitely intervene – not sure why you would leave ignorant people at risk: at least increase education about the good of vaccines and the science behind them. Jamie Everett, Facebook Speaking as someone with an auto-immune condition, some state intervention would be bloody lovely. Jasmine Angel Woods, Facebook It’s antisemitism in action.
