São Paulo, Brazil, has more empty buildings than people living on the streets. A new movement is reclaiming them for homeless, low income families but these actions puts them at odds with the home owners, the police and the law. Please take a few minutes to watch our thought-provoking short film Mauá Surroundings - Why Poverty? (English version) #whypoverty

Great news! Today, Guy Scott, Zambia's Vice President, is hosting a screening of our film Stealing Africa followed by a panel discussion on poverty and Zambia's copper mining industry at the country's Government House. The documentary is also part of this month's Lusaka Film Festival. Let's hope all this signals an end to multinational tax dodging in Zambia and that Zambians will finally start to benefit from their country's natural wealth and resources. Please watch like and share our film, especially ahead of tomorrow's G20 meeting with its focus on preventing global tax avoidance: Stealing Africa - Why Poverty? #G20

It's great to know that Dokufest in Kosovo are showing some of our films as part of this year's festival. We also love this #WhyPoverty wall of notes that has been created to encourage people to share their thoughts on extreme poverty. What would your note say? http://instagram.com/p/dR4W1zKg8l/. #dokufest13

Many students will receive their exam results today. Results that will decide which university, if any, they can get into. But is further education still a route out of poverty or has it become a cause of it? Watch our documentary 'Education, Education' and decide. http://bit.ly/11xGttQ #whypoverty   #alevels   #university
